A HA! This was the book that so haunted me from middle school! After I had described the plot, some friends suggested it might have been Naya Nuki Shoshone Girl Who Ran by Kenneth Thomasma, but it wasn't. It was this! The scene that is still so vivid in my mind was when the two girls are abducted by slavers. Shudder shudder shudder! I hated this story. Was it against the law to have us middle schoolers read something funny or uplifting? What is wrong with the people who create the required-reading lists for middle schools? Are they all tortured souls who want to dwell on the worst of humanity or believe the arbitrary age of 11-13 is the perfect time to be introduced to the most depressing books ever written?
