One of the best books this year!

This book was so many things; riveting, thought-provoking, horrifying, hopeful, joyous. I want to thank Laurie Halse Anderson for writing about a time period that I "thought" I knew about. Her book clearly shows me that I have much to learn. The story is based around Isabelle, a young slave girl, who is sold to a very cruel Tory family. Everything takes place in New York. You will find yourself crying one minute and then totally outraged the next. If you enjoy historical fiction then I believe you will like this. If you teach the Revolutionary War time period, then you may want to read this to give your students a different glimpse into a slave's life during this war. Very enlightening and most certainly assured that you would have plenty to talk about!! Best part, she's writing a sequel!!
