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.

“An exciting adventure with Dickensian touches, horrible villains and pulse-pounding suspense.”
The Buffalo News

 “I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history and willing to take the time to understand the old English.”
The Denver Post

“Action-packed and inspirational—another stunner.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“One thing is certain: it may be the end of the world, but there is no end to the pleasure Avi’s latest evokes.”
Booklist, starred review

“Newbery Medal winner Avi s a skilled writer, and here he cleverly blends page-turning adventures with America's painful social history. Readers will be entertained — and stressed out — even while learning about the plight of the slaves and indentured servants who helped build our country.”
Deseret News


Avi is one of the most celebrated authors writing for children today, having received two Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards, a Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction, a Christopher Award, a Newbery Medal, and two Newbery Honors. He lives in Colorado.
