    Wow As I turned every page I could not help but feel as if I was living life beside this Slave Girl in the 1830 s The author of this book took me deep into the life of young girl name Harriet Jacob, where I did not experience her life from the outside, but from her personal place where all her thoughts and true feelings were hiddenher diary, letters to her loved ones The reality and the rawness of Harriet Jacobs story is what makes this book so captivating I experienced each event with Harriet as I read letters that she wrote to her deceased mother, missing family members and loved ones Harriet s life is a trail of tears as she has to hide her thoughts and sometimes even herself in order to protect what she loves Harriet wants what many slaves living during the Civil War wanted, freedom The letters that she wrote depicted that, especially when her mistress died and she has the chance to finally become free Freedom comes with a price and I ran beside Harriet as she made each decision in her efforts towards escaping to a better future Sometimes I would cringe, when the Docter her slave owner would walk by, looking for her I was holding my breath, hoping that if I held mine long en...

    Definitely a book for discussion and thought, especially for 5 8th graders Adults can read it quickly This is not the book Ms Jacobs wrote herself, but is based upon that book and events during the time she lived.

    I would recommend this to students grades 6 and up who enjoy biographies and American history and especially want to learn about the impact of slavery on young women and their families.

    Damn they did not hold anything back when showcasing the unique way black women suffered under slavery They didn t have to go into graphic detail for the point and horror to come across clearly.
