it was amazing
Read in July, 2011

Just finished this book which is taken from interviews with slaves after they had been freed. It is intended for a young adult audience, but it is really powerful and brutal without being explicit. The book has been around for 30 years and I'm asking myself why I had never heard of it. Why wasn't it ever assigned in school? AP History? AP English? It's a must read.
