    This book had 177 pages The main character is Sarah She is a sweet little girl that keeps friends as a family She likes to play with her friends a lot but not to be bored The realationship between Sarah and I is that she never lets go of anybody and keep them It reminds me of the time when there was racism.

    This was a difficult book to read Not because it was poorly written, because the writing is fantastic It was difficult to read because of how angry it made me, and how that emotional level was kept at a fever pitch through the entire book It was exhausting to read with that kind of internal churning I kept asking myself how it was possible that we, as a species, can do these sort of things to one another How we can justify the wholesale subjugation of another ace to the point that it seems This was a difficult book to read Not because it was poorly written, because the writing is fantastic It was difficult to read because of how angry it made me, and how that emotional level was kept at a fever pitch through the entire book It was exhausting to read with that kind of internal churning I kept asking myself how it was possible that we, as a species, can do these sort of things to one another How we can justify the wholesale subjugation of another ace to the point that it seems a normal part of daily life, and something that is our right to do That we are doing them a favor by kidnapping and enslaving them That tearing apart families in the name of profit or expedience is just fine Looking into that specter of the not all that distant past is horrific and chilling.It was also moving, and inspiring Not matter how broken as a people a group can be, individuals will always rise in the name of love and of freedom and join together with those who would see all people free,see all people equal That not matter the hate, the ignorance, and the violence the tyrannical vomit forth, there will be those to stand against that vile tide and refuse to be swept away, to be swept under.As angry as it made me, it also gave me hope It is well worth the read, not only as a fictional account of a true event, but as an unflinching look into the dual sides of human nature

    Can you handle the inner thoughts of a slave auctioneer Spoiler tags for ethnic slurs view spoiler slave seller I don t have much respect for a man who wants to cry over some niggers Man like that don t deserve to own slaves Why does he care what they think If he sold some of his mules, he wouldn t care what the mule thought, because a mule can t think Niggers ain t no different And to tell the truth, I ve seen some mules that hadsense hide spoiler Julius Lester masterfully uses Can you handle the inner thoughts of a slave auctioneer Spoiler tags for ethnic slurs view spoiler slave seller I don t have much respect for a man who wants to cry over some niggers Man like that don t deserve to own slaves Why does he care what they think If he sold some of his mules, he wouldn t care what the mule thought, because a mule can t think Niggers ain t no different And to tell the truth, I ve seen some mules that hadsense hide spoiler Julius Lester masterfully uses multiple perspectives and a historic slave auction to show many sides of slavery in the American South Lester gives nearly all the characters enough humanity to make you see them as people people turned against each other by an amoral system It is a harrowing, riveting book.My only complaint is that the to focus characters for the beginning portion of the book, Will and Mattie, are too predictable They think exactly what you would expect two household slaves to think at the outset of a massive auction The book becomes muchcomplex when it introduces the conflicts of the white characters as they are forced into hypocrisy by the system, and the character of Emma who is gradually dragged deeper into the evil of the situation.Recommended for mature Middle School students This book is too intense for some readers
