Chains

Laurie Halse Anderson

Isabel is a young slave girl. Sold to a couple who are embroiled in the day’s political affairs, she and her sister are taken to New York - crowded, chaotic and in a state of turmoil with the threat of British invasion. Isabel struggles to keep herself and her sister safe in a home and a city where they have no control. But she has the help of a street-wise young boy, Curzon - or does she?

This haunting and powerful novel tells not only the story of a remarkable girl but also reveals a time and place in which lives were valued like bundles of vegetables, and America was fighting for independence.
