Imagine you are a girl who has to dress like a man to join the army and go to war.
Well that’s what Deborah had to do.
The Secret Soldier is a historical fiction book that tells of Deborah’s adventures during the American Revolution. She wanted to fight for her country, but women were not allowed to join the army. So she disguised herself as a man and fought for the Patriots. She was a good soldier. 
If you like adventure books with bravery, cleverness and a hard working character, then this is the right book for you!
