Vivid storytelling and authentic dialogue bring American history to life and place readers in the shoes of real people who experienced some of the most pivotal moments of the American Revolution. Unrest was growing in the thirteen colonies but Massachusetts was a hotbed of revolt, especially in light of the Boston Tea Party. The British king and Parliament were considering various ways to quell the rebellion, leading to the Intolerable Acts. The colonists hold the First and Second Continental Congresses, war breaks out, and the Declaration of Independence is written. Readers dive into this history and make choices throughout that affect the outcome of the story. Scenarios are developed and lead up to choices, which the readers take to control the direction of the character and story. This format creates a unique and powerful experience for readers as they face the challenges and decisions that real people encountered.
