Though from completely different backgrounds and despite their instant dislike for each other they do have one thing in common: They both want the British out of Boston When a chance encounter brings them together, Nick and Penny see a way to help the patriots. But first they'll have to earn the trust of some of America's great revolutionaries including Paul Revere and Dr. Joseph Warren and muster the courage to confront innumerable dangers.

Action packed, laced with humor, and visually dynamic for today's readers, "Road to Revolution "cleverly intertwines fact and fiction for an unprecedented view of American history.
