      Despite some unnecessary rough language, and negative portrayal of Christians, this historical novel shows a slice of life during the American Revolution as seen through the eyes of a black girl whose father is killed and whose mother is kidnapped by the British. Strong impressions of grisly battle, and poor treatment of blacks, and especially black women.

      Do you like books about slavery, being a 14 year old girl and having a kidnapped mom and have to go 2 or 3 years without see her, and having to deal with a slave owner trying to put you back in slavery and him being your slave master? Do you? Well let me introduce this chiller book, " War Comes to Willy Freeman" to you. To me, this book was very well brutal, a little overated, and dejected ,but overall this book was prime.This books takes place in the 1700's around the Revolutionary War and in N [...]

      (Writing Art Book Review)Almost all of the books in world have many different kinds of events in the books. The events in the books are mainly divided by two sections, positive and negative events. The one of the books that contains the one of the negative events is “War Comes to Willy Freeman” The reason why I am saying this is that you might not want to imagine that you were in middle of the war between America and Britain, and your mom was taken away by British and your father got killed [...]

      Imagine you were in American Revolutionary war time, your mom was taken away by British and your father was killed fighting in the war, what would you do now? That was exactly what happened to Willy Freeman in this book. It was uneasy to disguise she was a girl. However, She was a brave and determined girl. As the war happened, she became alone after she came home helping her dad fighting the war and discovered her mother was disappeared. She was scared and confused not knowing what to do, but s [...]

      Willy's father dies, she decides she needs to go look for her mother. With options being very limited for a teenage black girl during the slavery era--even in the free states--Willy chooses to dress as a boy and work in a tavern while researching her mother. But she is being pursued by a man who believes slaves should never be free. . . .The book is fairly well told and the ideas are compelling. The actual storytelling style is a little overly declarative, frequently--we hear about what Willy is [...]

      I used this as a Literature Circle book during my Revolutionary War unit. The other 2 books used in class were My Brother Sam is Dead and Johnny Tremain. The story is of a young girl (who can pass as a boy - hence Willy) whose father is killed by the British. Her mother is taken away by the British and suddenly Willy is left alone. She travels to Connecticut to see her aunt and uncle and then goes to New York City to find her mother, who she thinks may be on a British prison ship. Willy gets a j [...]

      It really is a tragedy having to lived in war times.If the setting of this book were different, it would change the whole story. Without a war (the Revolutionary War), there wouldn't be so much physical suffering. Willy Freeman wouldn’t be an orphan and face problems as a black girl. There’d be laws that protect her from the racial and gender injustice she face. Willy wouldn’t be boss around by others and have to pretend she’s a boy. People would respect her more. And there wouldn’t be [...]

      This book helps children understand the role minority-race Americans have played through our history, and also tackles the sex issue--Willy is a girl who disguises herself as a boy to stop herself from being victimized by a society that drafts black women decidedly on the bottom of the totem pole. She has to deal with losing her daddy in the war and then becoming an adult who provides for herself, all while keeping the secret of her being female from those who know her. It's well-written and eng [...]

      I have a box of young adult literature from different library sales. Slowly I'm going through it to see what it worth holding onto and what I should get rid of. There are a few that I have started and immediately threw away. I'll hold on to this one. It's entertaining enough as a historical fiction.I've got a strange assortment. So I'll start the reviews with From the Box if that's where they came from.

      Grades: 5-7This historical fiction novel is full of action and suspense. It tells the stuggle of a young, free, African-American girl who is on a mission to find her captured mother during the Revolutionary War. It presents topics such as racisism and prejudice towards femals, African-Americans, British soldiers, and American rebels. It is an unique retell of the way of life during the Revolutionary War. One could do a compare and contrast with this book and Johnny Tremain.

    16. Mica Fidler

      Willy demonstrates bravery and impetuousness throughout this Revolutionary War novel. The book also dances with gender and considers the situations in which each gender is preferable. While some of Willy's antics are unrealistic, the book is grounded in historical events which make it an ideal book for 7th grade's Revolutionary War curriculum.

    17. Abbey Vh

      Over all this book was a great adventure, even though most of the time Willy's life was hard. The ending was the apsolute best part and I'm glad I finally read a book with a good ending. This book is a great adventure story and I recomend it to anyone who likes books that are adventure, drama, and love stories.

    18. Jason

      Willy Freeman was a girl and she pretended as a boy. That was because at that time it was the Revolutionary War and the British raped girls and her family didn't want that to happen. When the war ended she sloped pretending as a boy and returned to a girl. At the time, she returned as a girl her mother died because of a sickness she had.

    19. Sarah

      War Comes to Willy Freeman is a great revolutionary novel that portrays what a young African- American girl would have to go thru back then. Even though it would have been nice if there was a little more reference to the revolutionary war, the story of Willy a slave’s side of the war and how they had to fight to become free was interesting.

    20. Orlando

      this book is good takes place in the american revolution war this book willy is a girl and the death of her father is in the hands of the britishd her mom has been taken away to new york .willy disguised her self to go find her .

    21. Ling

      This book is talking about a black girl, who used to be a slave, went to save her mother from British prisoner ship during Revolutional War. She was an amazing figure in this book. You might want to read it if you like historical books.

    22. 1 Ryan

      This is a good book, but is really weird because it takes place in the Rev. War. Willy's father dies in the beginning and his mother is captured by the British. The thing that this book lacks a very suspenseful plot, but does include action.

    23. Raymond J

      I did not care for this book. I did not like the ending. The only part that was a little exciting was the part when Willy worked for the Ivers and when she told Horace that she was a girl. Other then that, I did not like this book.

    24. karen manigault

      It was about a girl who wanted to go looking for her ma dad and because it was an amazing book. it help me realized that back then people had a hard time

    25. Iryna

      This book was intense at every corner and I like the way the authors made the people in this book to match up in history.
