Description

Acclaimed children's author Avi's many accolades include a Newbery Medal and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Inspired by true stories from the American Revolution, Sophia's War begins in 1776, when British troops arrive on the doorstep of 12-year-old Sophia Calderwood's home in New York. After the disappearance- and possible capture- of her brother, and the execution of Nathan Hale, Sophia has vowed to do all she can to help the cause for independence. But the war will test her in ways she never imagined.

Professional reviews

"At the start of the Revolutionary War, Sophia is only 12. Narrator Angela Goethals's voicing is appropriately tremulous in the midst of such upheaval. Overall, her diction is clear and resonant. She uses vowels to create character, giving Sophia her early innocence with rounded open words. As she lives under the British occupation of Manhattan, Sophia's voice gains a commanding edge. By age 15, she has grown into a young woman capable of the vengeance she vowed upon her brother's death in the miserable conditions of an English prison. But even in the midst of revenge, Sophia's loyalties are tested by the charms of the English officer John AndrŽ. In an author's note, Avi delineates fact from fiction and describes the inspiration for the story. A.M.P. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
