It's the summer of 1814. The British are advancing on Baltimore, where Jacob Franks and his family live. They've already burned down Washington, D.C. Will Baltimore be next? Jacob and his friends do their best to help out by digging trenches and building ramparts. They bring kosher food to the Jewish soldiers at Fort McHenry. But will the people of Baltimore be able to protect their beloved city?

"This beautifully expedited novel ... spreads the message of the importance of family, friendship, hard work ... and pulling together across racial/ethnic barriers in times of need."
