The Keeping Room
Myers, Anna

Revolutionary War novel with a difference. When Colonel Joseph Kershaw leaves Camden, South Carolina, to lead the American rebels in their struggle against the British, he leaves his son Joey behind as the man of the house. But what can a 13-year-old do when General Cornwallis comes into town and makes the Kershaws' home his headquarters, and begins hanging American prisoners in the family garden? Joey is determined to get revenge--even if he has to risk everything.


Left in charge of the family, Joey fears he may be betraying his father, who joined the Revolutionary War effort.
