Decent collection of short stories written by children's/YA authors. It's a mixed bag. Some stories are great, some are so-so and some I just wanted to skip.

All the stories explore different forms of enslavement (literal and figurative) and freedom. Each story is followed by an Article (of declaration?) by Amnesty International. If the story is tied into historic/current events there is a paragraph with additional information.

I think this would be good for a classroom because each story invites discussion.
