Sons of Liberty

By Adele Griffin
Rating: 4 stars

In this solid, absorbing story, Rock is proud of his heritage which goes all the way back to the American Revolution and the Minutemen.  In fact, he is a bit of a history buff.  So when his father wakes him and his brother up in the middle of the night to work on the roof or some other project, he knows it is just to toughen him up like the patriots of that time were.  But when his brother keeps talking about how controlling his father is, Rock feels it is disloyal.  Even if he does feel bullied sometimes and even if his mother won't even leave the house any more.  But it isn't until his best friend Liza asks for help from Rock and Cliff to runaway from home and her abusive stepfather that Rock starts to think a little more about his own home life and whether or not he wants to stay in it.  If he had to make a choice between father and family and yourself, which would he choose?  Readers won't know until the last page.
