I really love this book. Ann Rinaldi reaches out into the heart of the reader, and pulls her into the spirit of young Phyllis Wheatly; a slave with an amazing talent for writing. The reader is able to join Phyllis in her journey of self-discovery as she tries to make sense of her life. Although she is treated well, she is unaware of the harsh reality that she will never be able to be who she feels she is because of her race. Love!

Sex: None...possibly some slight, flirtatious language
Violence: Boston revolutionary riots
Language: None
Drugs: Herbal tea
