    Just a Tad Different

    This was a rather enjoyable book, and it shows how stupid the whole slavery thing was¿I mean, if a chair ran away, would you chase after it? I doubt a you'd go after a chair, even if it's your property. I thought the book could've been a little more descriptive on introducing the characters, but otherwise, I liked reading it and couldn't put it down. ^_^

    A real page turner...

    I loved this book! I like historical fiction and thought the characters were excellent. I love that the hero of the book is a girl. History can be a bit dry but this book really hooks its reader's.

    I couldn't put it down!

    This book was so good I read it in two days! If you haven't read it, you should! It's about a girl named Lucy who helps to get runaway slaves to Canada. It has adventure, romance, and much, much more!

    Excellent Story of the Underground Railroad!

    This is an amazing story about a young girl helping runaway slaves escape to Canada. This is one of those storys that gives you the personal efects of war rather than being on the battle front itself.
