Booklist Reviews 2020 May #2

On a dark Grand Bahama Island beach, Frannie finds the dead body of a young lady and impulsively steals her clothes, desperate to escape an abusive stepfather. Frannie is "rescued" as Emmeline Coates and taken on board a British ship bound for New York Harbor—and the heart of the Revolutionary War. On that ship she meets a young patriot who lends her Thomas Paine's Common Sense and teaches her to move, eat, and speak like a lady before he's press-ganged into His Majesty's navy. Three years later, Frannie lives as Ms. Coates, socializing with the highest ranks of the British Army. She's courted by a dashing officer and connects with General Washington's spy ring, sharing the details she overhears at dinners and dances. Rossi, who bases Frannie on a spy known only as 355, weaves historical figures and events into this tale as Frannie risks all for the cause she believes in while trying to reclaim her true self. Romance rivals intrigue in a story that readers will find the very opposite of dry history. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

A headstrong, wreck-diving narrator becomes an informant for the American Revolution in this high-stakes historical adventure inspired by an actual spy. In the Bahamas in 1776, Frannie Tasker's menacing stepfather insists she marry him now that her mother, a Spanish immigrant, has died. Stormy seas offer an opportunity for escape when a ship sinks and the corpse of a well-born passenger, Emmeline Coates, washes ashore. Rossi (the Under the Never Sky trilogy) keeps tensions high as 15-year-old Frannie assumes Emmeline's identity and sets sail toward the girl's guardians—and a life of wealth and refinement—in New York City. Her introduction to Thomas Paine's Common Sense en route, and her new life of society and deception in New York, prime Frannie to pass military secrets for George Washington. Rossi excels at portraying the danger of Frannie's society life and intelligence work—which escalate as she becomes romantically involved with a British officer—while crafting a daring heroine and her compelling exploits. Ages 12–up. Agent: Tina Dubois, ICM Partners. (June)
