really liked it
Read in April, 2012

This book opened my eyes to the atrocities that slaves experienced not only from Americans, but their own people who captured them and marched them across Africa to be inhumanely shipped to America. The lies that were told to the slaves and the outright disrespect for them as humans will break your heart. It is the story of a little girl who is captured and sent to America. Her story is one of hardship and determination. I higly recommend this book to everyone!
