Description

2006 Word Guild Award — Winner, Young Adult Fiction

Sophie Mallory’s American family knows everything about fighting the British. It’s the family tradition. But after she comes to Lower Canada in 1838, rebellion becomes personal when she’s taken prisoner. Befriended by Luc, a young rebel, she comes to see its many sides - the deep wrongs underlying the passionate revolt, the politics, and the brutal savagery of its aftermath.

This is no ordinary novel about our Canadian past. Its two wonderful characters face complicated problems of friendship, loyalty, and betrayal and begin questioning their families’ political beliefs. In Sophie’s Rebellion, Beverly Boissery deftly weaves adventure, excitement, sadness, humour, and personal growth.

Editorial Review

Boissery clearly knows her history. The fact that she is an authority on the subject is, from an educational standpoint, reassuring. The construction of characters such as Sophie and Luc helps to make the historical content accessible and understandable. These things being the case... I recommend this book as a means to help adolescents develop a greater awareness of the history of Canada and the role that history has played in shaping present-day Canada.
