Book about sailing/pirates à Name that Book (Décembre 2015)


Noah Cope, a 13 year old boy, is living through the American Revolution. He has to become the man of the house after his father, a pastor who is loyal to the English Church and the king, is killed by the rebels. After he and his family leave their home of Tullbury to move to Boston to live with their uncle, Noah has to find a job to help provide for his family. He gets a job working as a spy for the British at the Green Dragon Tavern. While working at the tavern, Noah starts to question the truth and whose side he is really on.

I am so glad that Avi wrote a new middle grades American Revolution book! I have been looking for a new book club book for some if my higher 5th grade readers for our American Revolution unit and this is it!

I love how clear Avi was in the early chapters with vocabulary. For children who are learning about the American Revolution and all the technical vocabulary it was a huge help! He clearly definite Tories, loyalists, red coats, Sons of Liberty, continental army, royal crown, and more. It really set the stage well for the young readers to learn, but also better understand the story.

I also really enjoyed the progression of the book. It mentioned so many real places and people. It will help students learn about some of the major events in the American Revolution and sympathize with the struggle people faced during the war, which I feel is sometimes left out of the history books. The main character Noah was very relatable. As a young boy you could really feel his struggle and trying to think for himself on what side he is on loyalist or rebel.

I really enjoyed this book. Very much like "Telephone," the story gets misconstrued the further it goes.
As a teacher, I empathize with her the most. But as annoying as Phillip is, I did find him quite realistic.

Sophia's brother, William, taught her about patriotism and the cause of liberty before he left to join General Washington's army. After the British seize lower Manhattan, Sophia must bridle her tongue and hide her allegiances. She watches Nathan Hale's hanging and witnesses the despicable inhumanity of the British prison ships when she tries to ease her brother's plight. In opposition to her hatred for the British is her infatuation for John Andres, a British officer billeted in her parent's home. Sophia must face her feelings for Andres and decide where her loyalties truly lie when she learns that Benedict Arnold conspired with Andres to surrender Fort West Point to the British.
