Great for Middle School literature classes

by FMCN1 on Sep 24, 2009

I am a middle school teacher and found this book wonderful to use as a class read. I loved that it looked at the Revolutionary War era through the perspective of a young female slave. It dealt not only with the realism of being a slave in NYC during this era but looked at the actual history of the British-American sides in this city and country. My students were fascinated and this book was great for a lot of discussion about the struggles of living in this time period. Highly recommended to provoke thought and discussion.
