    The touching tale of an unexpected friendship in the face of overwhelming odds

    Blair Robertson has a powerful gift: He is a great talker. When he speaks, other kids listen. And he really loves to speak. One of his favorite subjects is his native land, the new United States of America. When Hal, a British orphan, passes by Blair and his friends, Blair yells, “Down with the British!” and compels his friends to toss poor Hal off the dock and into the water. Little to Blair’s knowledge, Hal doesn’t know how to swim.

    Set in Fairport, Maine, at the outbreak of the War of 1812, The Boy Patriot follows Blair as he attempts to balance his patriotism with the need to do right, while learning that friendship can emerge from the most unlikely places. When a British vessel arrives on the horizon, though, Blair knows his life will never be the same.
