This book opened my eyes to the daily live of a slave girl. The injustice of being born black and not having any rights. This was a sad story but once that brings life to a time that I am not sure I would have been able to live.

Having had a major problem with the knowledge of slavery my whole life I felt I must read this book. How long will it be before people stop hating and begin to just give each other their space reguardless of the color of someones skin.
