This book was awesome and based on a life story. Yes, definitely a LIFE story. My kids clapped and screamed at the end. They were engrossed in the book from beginning to end. They are 9. They hated to stop reading the 1st night. We finished it the 2nd night because I couldn't stop reading.

This might be scary for a younger child. But 4th grade and up should definitely be able to handle it. Discussions around slavery and the underground railroad.

One day I'd like to take them on a trip to Michigan to see the area where this took place.

Great book!!!
