So far I really like this book. The main story is that joeys dad is in war when the British (or red coats,) take over their village and the captain chooses their house as the men’s headquarters. Then, they built all kinds of new things, which lead to the hanging of many of the American soldiers. Joey finds out that his father is in the jail that the other men had built. His mother is very worried when she finds out about Joeys father, so she has asked to go see him in jail. The captain refuses to let her see him but he lets Joey. When he goes to see him, he looks horrible and in shackles. He tells Joey that he is going to be shipped overseas on an island. When he gets back to the house, he doesn’t tell his mother about the condition that his father is in. But he does decide to do something about the red coats taking over their house; he puts a blanket over a fire to leave the soldiers with no headquarters. They make him into a slave, and that’s what has happened so far.If you want to read this, this is what this book looks like....
