By far the best book in the Dear America series that Five of Hearts and I have read so far. The writing is absolutely phenomenal! Patricia C. McKissack's character of Clotee comes to life so beautifully that it was hard not to become completely engrossed in her story. Five of Hearts has read the Addy (American Girl) series so we have previously discussed slavery in the United States. However, A Picture of Freedom gave a detailed account of life on a plantation for a young slave. There were many scenes that were tough to read as the horrors of slavery were described. These, together with the remarkable moments in Clotee's life, made her story one that we will never forget. I highly recommend this book
