Summary Of Chains By Laurie Halse Anderson

111 Words1 Page
Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson, is a slow read. It is about two slaves named Isabel and Ruth set during the revolutionary war. Their owner, Miss Mary Finch, promised them freedom when she died. Before they girls could leave Miss Finches plantation upon her death, her nephew claimed the girls and resold them into slavery. They were sold to a british merchant couple in New York. Because of the association between the merchants and Great Britain, Isabel is asked to be a spy for the patriots. At first she said no, but after an incident occurred with Ruth, Isabel agreed. This book was okay but not recommended for a casual read.
