In this sequel The Unexpected Life of Oliver Cromwell Pitts by Newbery Medalist Avi, Oliver’s adventures take him to the 18th century American colonies, where he is forced to fend for himself in the harsh wilderness, live as an indentured servant, and come face to face with the brutality of enslavement.
