I was disappointed in this book in part because there actually were some pretty exciting events in SW Michigan involving escaped slaves, and I had hoped this book would deal with that real history. While the author did use real history, it was of the unexciting kind, which she then tries to make more exciting by inventing a non-historical bad guy who kicks up the mayhem level considerable. Go figure.

That said, the book's basic plot is interesting enough, but the execution is somewhat lacking. T

I read this book in fourth grade because we were learning about local history (and the book is set in my hometown) but I didn't quite remember it, so I reread it.

A more comprehensive book written from the POV of Neil and Clay would have been nice, but Neil's POV was great to see how the UGRR went down.
