George Washington’s Secret Six (Young Readers Adaptation) by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger
Published 1/29/19

A page-turning middle-grade adaptation of the New York Times bestseller about George Washington's top-secret spy ring that helped defeat the British. The American Revolution is well under way in 1776, but things are looking bleak for General George Washington and his Continental Army. Washington soon realizes he can't win with military might. Instead, he must outsmart the British, so he creates a sophisticated intelligence network: the top-secret Culper Spy Ring. 

 “I think this book was really good because it told the true story, and it was really descriptive”

—Kassie, age 10

Recommended for ages 8 and up.
