Nicole asked:

Can anyone explain why this book may contain mature content and what the mature content consists of? I would like to order this for my class, but need to know if it is appropriate for my middle schoolers. Thanks!


There is some mature content in the book, including some dramatic and somewhat disturbing information, but slavery in Louisiana was very disturbing by nature. I doubt, however, that Sana Khalid read our book. I think, rather, that he's heard about the movie, which was brutal.
