Very emotional read~ ( )

Amari is a young Ewe girl in West Africa, Ghana I assume since she was taken to Cape Castle and is part of Asanteland. Her village welcomes a group of Ashanti warriors and their pink skinned guests. After exchanging gifts they attack and kill most of the village. Amari is the only member of her immediate family to survive. She is marched to the coast shackled, kept in Cape Castle until she passes through the 'door of no return' into the belly on a slaving vessel. She meets an older woman who gives her knowledge and courage. After the Middle Passage she lands on Sullivan Island and her new very different life begins in a new and dangerous land.
I liked that the author used real places and policies. It added richness and depth to the story which this novel truly needed. Also appreciate the 'gator bait' scene this fact, that enslaved black children were used to entice gators, is often disputed so I appreciate the inclusion.
I dislike Polly being a POV character and I dislike the storyline with Mrs Derby and Noah. It felt unnecessary. Also the walk to Fort Mose felt odd as they really had no directions and would have little idea of where they were going.
I appreciate the author including books, websites and TV shows she used for reference. However I completely disagree with her stance that white women slave owners were little more than slaves themselves. She must've read different slave narratives and history than I read. White women are complicit for what happened during slavery; in fact as the wives and daughters of slave owners, they themselves were slave owners. They were brutal too: took part in whipping, raping, terrorizing, oppressing, murdering and had children and families sold and split up. They do not deserve a pass. Like female SS officers, they deserve to be held accountable for their complicity.
Decently written but I find myself concerned about Amari but not invested in her character. Perhaps the writing style? I didn't much care for the writing style of this author. ( )

Amari, a fifteen year old girl, has her world ripped apart by slave traders and is sent on an adventure that she didn't want to be part of. Along the way, she makes new friends who help her find her way. She also finds her inner strength to carry her through the scary, tough parts of her journey.

It is the 18th century. Amari is a 15-year old girl in her village in Africa when the village is attacked by white people and the survivors are chained up and taken away. Amari has a boy she was intending to marry, but obviously that will no longer happen (though he survived the initial attack, as well). To no surprise to the reader, they are shipped to the United States where they become slaves. On the plantation that Amari goes to, she becomes unlikely friends with a white girl around her age - Polly is an indentured servant.

It’s a YA book, so it doesn’t go into as much detail as adult books might, nor is it as complex, but it was still good. I’m still not sure if Fort Mose in Florida is real, though. It’s someplace I hadn’t heard of. ( )

What are you doing up there, Kwasi?" Amari asked her eight-year-old brother with a laugh. He had his legs wrapped around the trunk of the top of a coconut tree. "For once I want to look a giraffe in the eye!" he shouted. "I wish to ask her what she has seen in her travels."

Amari thought back, however, to what Polly had said at the start of this journey: “Freedom is a delicate idea, like a pretty leaf in the air: It’s hard to catch and may not be what you thought when you get it.” Amari wondered if this long and arduous journey would bring her the happiness she dreamed of. Maybe this place would turn out to be a terrible disappointment.
