This is the BEST book I have EVER read on slavery...and i've read a lot of books. I have read this book over and over so many times. I love books that are on the subject of the Civil War...and this is the one that got me into the Civil War. I love the way that you can see/feel/hear a lot of pesonality coming from the characters.

Summer Parnell is a well of questions. She has a why, how come, and what for almost every thing. Rosco, her brother is diferent. He can keep a secret, and he can read. Reading is dangerous for a slave. If found out, you could be sold away or worse. Rosco's reading isn't so much of a problem for them, as long as Rosco keeps his secret. On Summer's birthday, Rosco desides to teach her to read. Can Summer keep the secret? Meanwhile Rosco has his own problems. The master is sick and wasting away. The master's wife has her brother come and take over the plantation. The new master is harsh and cruel. It isn't long before he decides to run away and enlist in the US army. If he is caught, he knows that he could lose his life. This story by Andrea Davis Pinkney is adventurous and a wonderful novel for anyone who has a silent longing. Andrea does a great job of showing the reader diferent perspectives of the same problem with different characters. The story seems like it could have really happened although it was fictional.
