    Seriously...Troubles Don't Last

    Troubles Don't Last was a great book!! I would recommend it to anyone who likes drama and/or suspicious book. The main characters are Samuel and Harrison. Guess what Samuel and Harriso are? They are both slaves. Samuel has been a slave since he was born. He has had a lot of adventures since he ran away from his master, but guess what happened after he ran away...cause I'm not telling you.

    I like this book

    This book is a very good book. This books title is called Trouble Don¿t Last. This book is a historical fiction book that is written by Shelley Pearsall. She has written a lot of other good books and stories. An audience or person that would like this book would probably by a person that is or was interested in slavery. If I had written an opening sentence for a poem or a story to grab the audiences attention, it would be ¿Do you think slavery was good for our nation of bad?¿ This was actually a very bad thing that that our nation ever had. In one sentence, to summarize this book would be, ¿This book is about two boys, Harrison and Samuel that are running to get away from slavery. In one sentence, this book is similar to another book called ¿Freedom Train.¿ The main characters in this book are Harrison and Samuel that are both running away from slavery. They are both young boys. The setting for this book is on September, 1859 in the North and the South. The main idea of this story is for Harrison and Samuel to get away from slavery. In this book, there are really no weak or strong points in this book. I think I will encourage to read this book because I liked it and I know they will like it too.

    Hip Hip hooray for Shelley Persall!

    Do you know about all of the hardships that slaves faced? Did you know how slaves had to stick together when running away? If you know about it and want to learn more, or if you know all about it already, the award-winning book, Trouble Don¿t last is right for you! Trouble Don¿t Last is about an 11 year old slave named Samuel and a much older slave named Harrison who run away. Along their way, they meet many obstacles and challenges, and even people willing to let them stay in their house. This heart-stopping suspense story will leave you on the edge of your seat!
