If an entire nation could seek its freedom why not a girl And if a girl was to seek her freedom how could she do such a foolheaded thingIsabel and her little sister Ruth are promised their freedom upon the death of their owner Mrs Finch Its even drawn up on paper by a lawyer but when the heir of Mrs Finch decides to sell the girls instead without so much as trying to consider their claim their lives take a dramatic turn Sold to the Locktons a crown loyal couple the girls are moved to New York As Ruth has some issues its Isabel that does most of the heavy work When she meets Curzon the slave boy of a patriot household he encourages her to spy on her masters At first Isabel is reluctant but when Madam Lockton does the inconceivable to Ruth she decides to act Isabel wants the freedom she was promised and she will not stop until she gets itIts been a while since I read a Laurie Halse Anderson book I read Speak a few years back so her writting style was somewhat familiar to me In Chains Anderson tells the story of thirteen year old Isabel Having been born into slavery she and her sister fortunately had an owner that decided to free them upon her death The nephew though had other ideas Instead of freedom they were sold to a heartless couple with strong loyalists ties The American Revolution has just begun Curzon suspects that Lockton has vital information that can help the patriots defeat the loyalists Isabel just wants to take care of Ruth but then something happens that makes Isabel change her mind Heartbreaking and horrifying this resounding narrative was eye opening Isabel has no allegiance she is willing to aid whomever will grant freedom As the fighting progresses so does Isabel s determination Aimed at a younger audience the descriptions of daily life for Isabel were not overly graphic but still hard to swallow While slavery and the fight for freedom are the main theme of the novel its Isabel s resileance that stands out Will be seeking the next in the series for sureThe historical background also plays a strong role in the narrative Most books I have read about slavery are set in the South New York is the primary setting and before the revolution it was a stronghold for the British and while its not as known or remarked about it too was a colony with slaves By 1776 one out of five people was in bondage It raises the uestion of how could a nation be fighting a war for freedom and liberty when they held slaves at home Its a fine line between irony and hypocrisy The loyalists sided with the crown while the patriots with freedom Slaves were pawns Promised freedom by the British thousands of slaves fled to the loyalist side but most did menial jobs The motivation of the British in offering freedom for the slaves were twofold strengthen their army and weaken the American economy but it was not done from a moral place The good vs bad story here is uite complex as neither faction is blameless This was an angle of the American Revolution I had not really thought about and I am glad Anderson shone a spotlight on it
