it was ok

There were things that I liked and things that bothered me. The things that bothered me the most was the way that Lillie nonchalantly faced things, though the consequences if she was caught was the whip at worst and death at best. To me this was more of a watered down portrayal of slavery, and I understand that this is juvenile fiction. Though it is an ugly and tumultuous time, it is a part of the United State's history. I think if you choose to write about this time, in honor of the men and women who lived/survived it and the men and women who fought to change it, you should do so accurately - regardless of the target age group. Other than that, it was an optimistic story, resolution at the end was not all that believable but, okay.
