Publisher's Summary

Meet Addy Walker, a courageous nine-year-old girl growing up during the Civil War. When her poppa and brother are sold to another plantation, Addy and her mother take the terrible risk of escaping to freedom in the North. To get away safely, they must leave Addy's baby sister behind in the slave quarters; her cries could cost them their freedom. As Addy and Momma slowly build a new life in Philadelphia and struggle to bring their family together again, Addy comes to realize a powerful truth: freedom has great costs.

WOW, this one is a keeper

I am an adult collector of AG dolls and I absolutely loved this book. Can't get enough of it. Will be listening many times. Its a difficult story of difficult life, but strangely, it gives me comfort when I am faced with trials.

My 8 yr old daughter didn't want to stop listening

Would you consider the audio edition of Addy to be better than the print version?

This was a great book for my daughter to read along with her 6 book series.She finished the books within two weeks. I've tried to get her to read them on her own for a year! Audio books really open up the world of reading for kids who have a hard time staying focused, and saves parents Voices in more ways than one :)

Children and Adults Great Read

The storyline is wonderful, it teaches so many good values to instill into young children. Even though the topic is a serious issue, it lets you visualize what is happening through the eyes of the child, Addy. At the closing of the book the reading about the History of Blacks in America is so incredibly powerful and very informative.

A historical story

It's a great story and it is very historical. I think the point is very important. I hope you will like it as much as I did.

I love American Girl

I have been a long time collector of the American Girl dolls and I just love the story of all of the Historical Characters. I am almost 22 years old and I still love reading the books. Addy's story was so heartwarming and so sweet she and her family never gave up on freedom and still keeping their faith to be going on the dreams of being together.

Beautiful book!

I grew up listening to this book. I always loved it. It's definitely educational and entertaining. I feel like I'm in the world as I'm listening to it. Struggles that are in it very difficult to hear. But it is history and I'm glad we've come a long way since then.
