So far, I'm loving this book! The girl in the book writes below an oak tree. She's trying her best to make sure no one figures out of her writing. Slaves in the day weren't supposed to know how to read or write, at least, where she's at for sure. Her name is Clotee.
Slavery is such a terrible thing but reading books like these ones, which are historical fiction, teach you so much about history and just in general. It also gives you a peek into the harsh parts of the past and real things that happen. It blows my mind that these are real things that at one point happened or existed! Slavery is just no good.
This book is amazing though, truly. I very much would say you should check out this book. I still haven't finished it but it's already so amazing! Dear America books are some of my top favorites for sure.
