In the War of 1812, the small ship-building town of St. Michaels on the Maryland coast is expecting a British attack. When the British fleet is sighted, the townsfolk evacuate.

Twelve-year-old Caroline Banning is determined to stay and help protect her home. As the fastest runner in town, she carries messages for the defending soldiers and spreads the word when a clever plan is hatched to save St. Michaels. But when the British assault begins, it is Caroline's courage -- not her speed -- that will be tested.

Drawing on historical fact and local lore, Caldecott medalist Emily Arnold McCully has created an original story of suspense and bravery.
