Fifteen-year-old Amari witnesses the murder of her family and the destruction of her remote African village. She endures countless humiliations as she is beaten, branded, and forced to board a slave ship. The atrocities continue as she struggles through endless days of backbreaking work and daily degradation on a plantation. Somehow, through it all, Amari's hopes and dreams survive because there are moments of kindness from an indentured white girl, Polly and the gentle wife of the plantation owner. Amari and Polly find that by working together freedom could be possible. Award-winning author and educator Sharon M. Draper, known for her popular, contemporary teen novels, successfully tackles historical fiction and received starred reviews from Booklist and the School Library Journal. In this well-researched novel, Draper explores the inter-relationships of those who live on a plantation.

    We bought this book to listen to on our family road trip through Florida & Georgia. It was so moving, thought provoking and so captivating that my three children aged 14,12 & 10 couldn't wait for each journey to listen to the story. We all felt so close and so passionately about the characters that we ended up visiting Fort Mose Museum in Florida, just to see for ourselves a piece of real history, brought to life by this wonderfully written book. Every child over 12 should read this, it was an incredible read. The narration was great, we were all very impressed.
