Rock Kindle is a Revolutionary War buff. He knows every battle, general, and weapon. But all those facts and figures don’t always help Rock when it comes to the war he wages with his father. Rock’s dad is a militaristic control freak who enjoys snapping orders at his two sons and his fearful wife, who rarely leaves the house. When Rock and his brother Cliff help their friend Liza run away from her abusive home, Rock starts to wonder if he should start making plans to leave his own. But Rock doesn’t know if he has the courage to turn traitor against his father, even it means saving his brother, his mother and even himself. A good read for the teenage underdog in all of us.
