The Redcoats Are Coming by Marianne Hering

The following post contains some advertisement for publisher.

"If they capture you, they can hang you for treason," Paul Revere said.
Join cousins Patrick and Beth on a patriotic adventure set in 1775, Concord, Massachusetts. They have a simple mission: to deliver a letter to Paul Revere. They arrive just in time to meet founding fathers John Hancock and Samuel Adams. They also meet a teen girl named Sybil. She's collecting musket balls for the Patriots and is on the lookout for Loyalist spies.
Available through Tyndale House and other online retailers. It is also available as an e-book.

About the Author:
Marianne has written for children since 1987 when she joined the editorial staff of Focus on the Family Clubhouse and Clubhouse Jr. magazines. In the 1990s she wrote six children's mystery books and more than 40 Bible phonic readers (with co-author Margaret Wilber) for Cook Communications. Now a general book editor for Focus on the Family, she has turned her passion for children's fiction into developing a series for beginning readers who love adventure.

I received this book from the Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review, and no other compensation was given.
What I thought:
The kids and I love this series! This book is number #13.
If you are looking for an exciting historical adventure for your child to read with great characters and awesome lessons - this is the series for you. This particular book was exciting for us, because we have been studying American History this year. And inspite of the fact that we have already gotten through this time period, the characters were familiar and the kids were sitting on the edge of their seats hanging on to every word. Once I even stopped reading... and they were staring at me - like - "What? Keep going!" Beth and Patrick are on a mission to deliver a letter to Paul Revere. The letter disappears, they are accused as spies, and much more excitement can be found in this book.  My 8 yr old could definitely read this on his own! You can also visit TheImaginationStation to find out more fun facts. Each book also includes a secret coded puzzle for your child to do at the end.

Have you or your family read any of the Imagination Station Series? We absolutely love Adventures in Odyssey also. 
Some other Imagination Station titles I have reviewed are:  The Devil's Dragon, The Battle of the Mysterious Island and The Hiding Place
