I was about eleven when I first read The Slave Dancer, which was around the same time that I was reading typical children's adventure stories and Goosebumps ...et cetera. So, as you can assume, this book had a tremendous impact on my eleven-year-old self. It was the first to open my eyes to a whole other world of writing. The Slave Dancer was incredibly chilling. I remember how I could see and feel the horrors that Paula Fox so mindfully brought to life, and it completely blew me away. I grabbed notecards and wrote down all the sentences I found most captivating in the book. I completely fell in love with it. After that, I went out of my way to find books that used descriptive language and imagery. I swear, it felt like I was learning a whole new language. So, I have to say there's a special place for this book because I love it not only for the story but how it helped me grow. I've been meaning to get my hands on it again to read it now that I'm an adult... new mission
