Agent 355 was one of the first spies for the United States. While the true identity of 355 remains unknown, here, young readers make decisions and determine their own survival by joining secret Agent 355 as the intrepid and brave American patriot spy. Along the way, readers can choose to thwart a counterfeiting scheme, warn General Washington of an assassination plot, or even save the day with Harry Potter's 11" wand.

The sky's the limit with your historical imagination!

Don't forget: YOU, the reader, are in the driver's seat! This time it's 1777 in Long Island, New York, and you're Myrtle Henderson's eleven-year-old niece. Stunned to discover your recently deceased mother was a member of the Culper Ring!, a group of spies so secret they don't even know each other! With each page turn YOU decide which way the story unravels.

This book like no other-to be used in a variety of ways-challenges puzzle-solving readers and ignites a love of history for life. The perfect gift or educational book, slyly written as an interactive narrative adventure, will delight and enthrall avid and reluctant readers with its energy and excitement.

As an added educational bonus, extensive backmatter includes a timeline, information about the lives of women in the American Revolution, and details about the real Agent 355 and the Culper code book.
