When Claudia decided to run away, she planned very carefully. She would be gone just long enough to teach her parents a lesson in Claudia appreciation. And she would live in comfort - at the Metroploitian Muesum of Art. She invited her brother Jamie to go too, mostly because he was a miser and would have money.
The two took up residence in the museum right on schedule. But once the fun of settling in was over, Claudia had two unexpected problems: She felt just the same, and she wanted to feel different; and she found a statue at the museum so beautiful she could not go home until she discovered its maker, a question that baffled even the experts. Join her on her mission to discover the truth about the statue!
All his life, Tim Meeker has looked up to his brother Sam. Sam's smart and brave, and always knows the right thing to do. In fact, everyone in town had admired Sam Meeker. Until now.
Now Sam is part of the New American Revolutionary Army. He talks about defeating the British and becoming independent and free. But not everyone in town wants to be part of this new America. Most people are loyal supporters of the English King, especially Tim and Sam's father.
The war is raging, and Tim knows he'll have to make a choice. But how can he choose-when it means fighting his father on one side, and fighting his brother on the other?
