This quick read is a great one to capture the attention of any group of middle schoolers and quickly draw them into the atrocities of slavery. This book, more than any other I have read on the topic, quickly gets to the point that freedom should be a privilege for us all. It should be understood that be educated well, helps us know how to hang on to those freedoms and defend them with all our wits and power.
I am the media coordinator at Central Wilkes Middle School. This is my third middle school and 8th year in media. I hope this blog will help me document all the newest experiences with books that I have so that I might be able to better share them with all of you!
