A DISAPPEARING JOURNAL, a mysterious woman, hidden scuba tanks... 
When odd things happen in the 1000 Islands, Corey summons the courage to follow the clues, but they only raise questions: Why does the War of 1812 diary disappear before he can decipher it? Why are scuba tanks hidden among the Thousand Islands along the Canadian border? When hockey player Auger Hart threatens Corey's dog, is he just nasty or does he have hidden  motives? The bicentennial puzzle seems too complicated until... 
SAMANTHA, smart and pretty, joins Corey. He takes heart, and she takes his, until he discovers her liason with Auger. Is she a deserter too? When Corey stumbles upon evidence of a 200-year-old truth to die for, can he protect it without Sam's help? 
PATRIOTS threaten Redcoats in the local War of 1812 bicentennial celebration, and Corey must make it through a town full of disguises, find his way out of an underwater tunnel, and save a loved one. It's a tall order for a boy who is the product of a deserter. Can he change history? 

FACTS BEHIND THE FICTION: The War of 1812 in the 1000 Islands 
Were there really pirates and privateers in the St. Lawrence River? Yes, the Thousand Islands--with its varying depths and river currents, hidden shoals, and 1800+ small islands and coves--has provided a backdrop for mystery, trickery, and treachery throughout American history. Real life pirates, spies, and privateers have used the maze of river channels and islands to accomplish missions both selfish and patriotic. 
During the War of 1812, British ships carried supplies and military pay across the Atlantic and then upriver on the St. Lawrence to Montreal. (Yes, on the St. Lawrence, upriver is southwest.) Then the cargo was carried in flat-bottomed boats farther upriver, past the rapids (and possibly offloaded again west of Prescott to a lake-sailing ship) to Kingston in Upper Canada. On its way, the cargo would pass through the Thousand Islands before entering Lake Ontario; British gunboats protected these vessels from ambush among the maze of islands and coves where an enemy could hide.

But.a disappearing journal, Mom s earring, and an abandoned scuba tank raise the questions: Why does the privateer s diary disappear before Corey can decipher it?

The bicentennial puzzle seems too complicated to solve until. Samantha helps Corey figure things out. Or does she have another motive?
