Read from July 12 to 20, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: several -- once since being on Goodreads.

I had loved this book growing up. I used to check it out from the library every summer. A few years ago, I bought myself a copy and finally have gotten around to reading it. This is one of my childhood favorites that doesn't quite live up to my memory.

I think that it is a good book for kids and I can see why I loved it when I was one, but now I want more detail. This novel is sort of like an introduction to slavery and what it was like to be a slave. Really good for the 7-10 age group, I think.
