Allison Briscoe is your average fifteen-year-old--until someone tries to kill her. Shot in the head, her doctors and family think she is in a coma, but in fact, though she cannot move, she can think, hear, and dream. Each night, Allison lives vicariously through her pioneer ancestors, entering the world of Rebecca Haun, a fifteen-year-old rebel who lived in Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War. To prove a friend innocent of murder, Rebecca betrays her Mennonite beliefs and joins the Women's Brigade with George Washington's rag-tag army at Valley Forge. And each day, Allison struggles to find a way to show her family that she is awake--a goal that becomes increasingly desperate when she realizes that whoever shot her has come back to finish the job. For junior and senior high students.
