Between Planets (1951) – Don Harvey's parents call him from boarding school on Earth, to join them on Mars when war between Earth and its colonies seems imminent. But war comes while he is in transit, and he is dumped on Venus as their Revolution begins. Eventually, he joins the Rebellion and finds that a plastic ring he had been given to deliver to his parents contains the key to winning the Rebellion and establishing independence for Venus and Mars.
