Blog Tour: Saving Dr. Warren...A True Patriot

Do you have a young adult at home who loves historical fiction and stories of adventure and patriotism? If so, you are going to especially appreciate the giveaway I am sharing with you today. 

I've partnered with The Children's Book Review and Jeffrey McKenna to share with you guys a giveaway for Saving Dr Warren...A True Patriot by Jeffrey McKenna.  As a history lover, I really like that this book covers various important moments in the Revolutionary War and introduces young readers to Dr. Joseph Warren. This book would be a great resource in a middle school history classroom.  

Learn More About the Book:

Publisher’s Synopsis: "Patriotism Prevailed in… ✯ The American Revolution  ✯ WWII  ✯ 9-11  What About Today?  How do we share Patriotism with America’s Future?  The novel Saving Dr. Warren… A True Patriot answers that question through the eyes of a 14 year old boy.   Steve O’Dell loves to write and does it well. But as an eighth-grade student at Needham Middle School, his talent sometimes seems more an embarrassment than a blessing.  Then, on Veterans Day 2001, Steve’s award-winning essay propels him into an adventure twisting through Revolutionary battles and bloodshed. Thanks to the bizarre bequest of a manuscript and a musket ball from a long-lost family war hero, Steve’s journey with the Revolutionary War hero Dr. Joseph Warren begins.  A time-traveling talisman missing from the archives of one of Boston’s oldest historical societies takes Steve through portals of history, where he walks side by side with a real Boston patriot. He makes house calls with Dr. Warren on March 5, 1770, and stumbles onto the bloodstained streets of the Boston Massacre. From the killings of March 5 to boarding tea ships in 1773, Steve’s history book explodes to life as he helps Dr. Warren and forges a friendship with Boston’s True Patriot. Steve watches Dr. Warren launch Paul Revere on his midnight ride, and he helps Dr. Warren dodge British musket balls in the first battles of the War for Independence. With each adventure, Steve tastes the light that ignites The Revolution.  Steve will eventually convince others that the Revolutionary relic he was given really does open portals through time, but he faces his most difficult quest alone—saving Dr. Warren from the onslaught at Bunker Hill. Can he do it? And if he fails, will he ever return to this century?  Saving Dr. Warren…A True Patriot rips through the pages of history. From the Revolutionary War to the vanishing veterans of World War II, to the ashes of September 11, 2001, Saving Dr. Warren demonstrates to both old and young that patriotism, standing like an old oak tree on a grandfather’s farm, has and will endure."
