Ashes by Laurie Halse Anderson was a historical fiction book and I thought it was pretty good. The characters like Curzon, Aberdeen, and Isabel are brave. Others like Ruth and the Hallahans were pretty easy going. They are in the middle of the Revolutionary War. Isabel wants to live a free life with Ruth but with the war they might not be able to.
Isabel and Curzon run from officers and are trying to find Isabel’s sister Ruth. When they stumble upon the Hallahans Isabel's dreams come true. Now she, Aberdeen, Ruth, and Curzon must find a way through the Revolutionary War. They will face challenges and hardships ahead and they might even find something secretive going on with Aberdeen. Will they make it? Read to find out what happens next!
