    Epub 20th century.co ¶ Chains PDF/EPUB ↠ chains book, Chains MOBIMy discovery of Laurie Halse Anderson’s Chains came at the best possible time I had recently read and reviewed Steve Sheinkin’s King George What Was His Problem? a book that looks at the stories behind the American Revolution that they don’t teach you in school I enjoyed the title thoroughly but one point had me baffled Why on earth did American slaves fight or aid the Revolution when Britain was anti slavery? It just didn’t make any sense It reminded me of that black character on the kids’ show Liberty’s Kids and my husband asking “So is he insane?” And up until now no book written for kids fiction or informational has ever really addressed this uestion to my satisfaction Enter Laurie Halse Ande

    Epub 20th century.co ¶ Chains PDF/EPUB ↠ chains book, Chains MOBIIt's taken me forever to getting around to writing a review of this book I read it about six weeks ago I suppose this is because it's getting near universal acclaim while I found it rather ho hum Perhaps reading all the positive reviews of this book got my expectations up too highMy main complaint is that the protagonist Isabel doesn't come off as a believable 18th century character to me It's the same problem I had with Catherine Called Birdy a girl in that time and place may have had those thoughts but would she have said them? To people who have power over her? It also seems odd that Isabel can read so well she secretly pours through Robinson Crusoe and later stumbles through Common Sense which would I think reuire a lot of practice in the act of reading
