    Absolutely Terrific!

    This book is wonderful. I am reading it now and I am in the 9th grade. It has opened my eyes to what slavery must have been like back then. But they made it through and that was awesome! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about African-American History and what they went through to get where they are today!

    good reading

    This book is a great book and the author did a great job putting in the book with the story. I could not put it down. I felt sorry for Vvry and what she had to go through back in those times. I read this book 4 different times in high school and not because it was assigned to me I had heard it through word of mouth.. Even after 8 years of not reading it I still can place myself where the story took place.. I wish all Jr. and High schools students had to read and do a report on it. Especially for Black History Month...
