    When you first walk into a room in a house, or into a stable, they have a way of telling you they know you're there. It ain't nothing particular noticeable, but the air inside of �em changes like it's saying, "I'm watching you". But I'd got into this stable so quiet and sneakish that nothing knowed I'd cracked open the door, held my breath, and took a step inside.

    Michael Yardley says: "Great Book, but not for young children"

    Overall

    The message of this story is very good and it is very well written. I love the language or voice that this book brings. Like a few of the recent Newberry Award Winners, there are a few themes that are not appropriate for younger audiences. There is talk about people breeding, and graphic descriptions of slaves naked in chains. I think that it is important that people come to understand the inhumanity of slavery, and this book is a fantastic book to address this issue. Although this is a horrific tragedy, the book also focuses on the triumphs and joys of freedom. It is a fantastic book for middle and high school audiences.
