Overview

Carrie has been a kitchen slave in Sam Fraunces's tavern in New York City for as long as she can remember. But after she narrowly escapes a kidnapper, Carrie becomes more curious about her mysterious past. After all, she doesn't even know her own last name.

When her friend Dan Arabus comes to town, he talks about his dream of buying his mother's freedom with the Continental notes his father left him. Deciding to help Dan discover how much the notes are worth, Carrie finds herself eavesdropping on Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and President Washington himself. What's more, Carrie also stumbles upon the startling truth about her own family.

A young black girl living in New York City in the late eighteenth century observes the historic events taking place around her and at the same time solves the mystery of her own identity.

    Nice written

    I think this was a good book to read because it is not fiction, and most people like true stories better than fiction, I guess. Carrie is a kicthen slave for years, and suddenly a kidnapper gets her, and try to sell her to the West Indies and she sees her friend, Dan, and she starts screaming and all, but he doesnt hear her. How will Carrie get out of this one? Discover yourself by reading it! Buy it now at Barnes & Noble!
