Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The United States has been torn in half by the war between North and South. It is vital for an army to know what the enemy is doingand perhaps spread false information as well. Spying is risky if you are caught. Still, it is worth it to help win the war. Will you: *Become a member of the Pinkerton Detective Agency to spy for the North? *Be a wealthy Southern woman spying for the Confederacy in Washington D.C.? *Be a free black man traveling into the South to spy for the Union? You Choose offers multiple perspectives on history, supporting Common Core reading standards and providing readers a front-row seat to the past.

I loved these kinds of choose-your-own-adventure books when I was a kid and incorporating historical events and facts into the stories makes them even more entertaining. Each book focuses on a different event in history, but it's up to the reader to choose the point of view to take. The story will progress for a few pages and then the reader must make a decision about what course they want to take. Then, the reader turns to the page directed in the book and sees what happens based on the choice made. Choose whether to be a civilian, patriot or British soldier during the Battle of Bunker Hill, whether or not to rush for a lifeboat on the Titanic, what job to take as an Irish Immigrant, and much more. On average, each book has about 3 story paths, 35-45 choices, and 15 different endings. This series will help students see historical events in a new, real way and is just plain fun to read. Each book is about 112 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Suspenseful and fun
This kept my 9 year old thinking and guessing and on the edge of her seat. And also helping her think through different options and considering the consequences of different decisions. I will be buying more from this series in the future.
