Publisher's Summary

It's the hot, miserable summer of 1787 in Philadelphia. Will the delegates at the Grand Convention succeed or fail at their mission? Will they amend the Articles of Confederation as instructed? Or are they up to something else? Our tale is brought to us by Henry, a young man from Britain who has been tasked with keeping an eye on what the delegates are up to. He is certain they cannot accomplish what they came to Philadelphia to do!
Historical fiction - this novel is written at a Young Adult level, but has been enjoyed by adults as well as students.

Failure in Philadelphia

My children
My children , ages 11 - 17, and I very much enjoyed this book. Well written and researched. Mrs. Jaime did not disappointe in her efforts to interest her readers in the subject of American history.

Failure

This is a fictional account of a spy for England in Philadelphia during the days leading up to the Constitution being ratified.It dealt a lot with the slavery issue.It was good.I liked Alexander Parrish reading but some of his narration could use some work.I was provided this book free by the publisher, author or narrator for a honest review.
