From the point of view of a free black teenager in Maryland, this book offers a different take on the impending American Revolution and the beginning of the conflict. Should African Americans (free or enslaved?) fight for American freedom when most of them have no true freedom and it seems they might never? Quite a powerful question. The characters here are sympathetic and realistic. I recommend this for teens and adults alike.

As the mother of two adolescents (11 and 14), I found this book to be highly appropriate and thought-provoking for both of them, presenting issues that are not only historic but also contemporary. War, slavery, love, friendship, abuse of power, freedom, and loyalty. The story does not flinch from the more gritty aspects of slavery and I am glad for that. We do our children no service to not let them understand an event in its context; there is a brief rape scene but what followed in the story was the triumph of the human spirit over such tragedy. This book shares the life of a "free black" and his enslaved friend, and how they grow and learn about themselves and the world against the backdrop of the American Revolution. An excellent novel I would recommend highly to middle schoolers and high schoolers.

My 12yr old asked me about this paragraph on page 114."She refused her master....Then he took advantage of her...ripped her skirt off and climbed on her, burying himself in her like a hog in rut." The book had potential up to that point, but I can no longer trust this author to choose appropriate words for young teens.
