    Aminata Diallo is the beguiling heroine of Lawrence Hill's Someone Knows My Name. In it, Hill exquisitely imagines the tale of an 18th-century woman's life, spanning six decades and three continents. The fascinating story that Hill tells is a work of the soul and the imagination. Aminata is a character who will stir listeners, from her kidnapping from Africa through her journeys back and forth across the ocean.

    Ariela says: "Rich in history and moral messages"
    "My favorite book of the year"
    Overall

    Loved this story about a young girl taken from Africa into slavery and her journey through life. It is a great history lesson and will make you ashamed to hear how the blacks were treated during this time. I especially adored the reader, like a young Maya Angelou. Captivating story and beautifully written.
