Most kids can't wait until Elevated Day, when they can finally unlock their hidden superpower. Rose remains a skeptic. While the treatment reveals a power, the outcome is irreversible and abilities can range from amazing to a nuisance. On top of that, she holds a deep rooted grudge against the treatment that turned her father into an Unsound, one with abilities so dangerous as to force them to a life of exile.

Her choice sends her down a path of discovery, as she seeks to learn more of the truth around the treatment and what really happened to her father. Fed up with lies, Rose wants nothing more than to learn the whole truth--even if it means accepting her fate as an Elevated.

Will Hannah ever find the adventure she longs for, or will she always be confined to the farm?

Hannah Wallace craves excitement, but all local adventures dried up long ago, when her parents unpacked their wagon on the Michigan frontier. Then war breaks out and her father and older brother leave to fight the Confederacy. Hannah is left at home chafing under the boredom of never-ending chores, jealous of her brother's lucky opportunity, and haunted by old memories--until unscrupulous speculators set their sights on the unmanned farm. The one place she longs to leave suddenly becomes the one place she'll risk everything to save. 

Likened to the rich literary style of Ann Rinaldi but with its own twist of adventure, Blood of Pioneers presents the struggles and dangers of the least-remembered front of the Civil War--the home front. Find out why so many teachers have incorporated this Civil War historical fiction series into classrooms across the country. The price is kept deliberately low so you can feel as good about the cost as you do about the content. Download your child's copy today and open a door to America's past.
