When reading Draper's book, I followed the text because the story sparked my interest a bit. However, I was fairly disappointed in certain parts of the book. Even though this was a work of fiction, some parts seemed too fictional. Personally, as an individual who has been researching on Black history for quite a while, there were certain interactions between characters, that if they had been real, it most likely wouldn't have happened. I suppose that she watered it down a bit because of the age of the readers, even though she may have thought she was emphasizing the violence and cruelty of the Great Maafa (Middle Passage). I will give Draper some credit that she has taken the perspective of an enslaved young woman of African/Afrikan descent and a white indentured servant. However, she has written much better work than "Copper Sun" and I recommend that you read her other books instead.
