The Secret Soldier is a very detailed and interesting book. It is a great book for children and adults. Deborah wanted to go to the army so she had to pretend to be a boy. This book had lots of action. It made the book exciting to read. I learned a lot of facts about the Revolutionary War. I would give this book 4 stars for its details and historical facts.

This book is about a woman named Deborah Sampson. The struggle in her life made her want to go to adventure and a war was coming up so she decided to join the army! Back then, Girls were'nt allowed to join the army so she disguised herself in order to join! Read this book to find out how'd it turned out...

A good informational book (in story format for youngsters) about Deborah Sampson. She was a very brave woman during the Revolutionary War, posing as a male soldier. She had endurance and faith in herself to conquer what she did. Although a very brief account of her life, this is a great book for students.
