Africa is My Home: From a Young Critic

I just came across the following from a Chicago Tribune round-up of young critic reviews.  Avery, I’m very honored!

“Africa Is My Home” is about a little girl and her friends who were taken from their homes and sold into slavery. In this book I learned how it felt to be locked in shackles in a dark, small space, about the slaves fighting their captors and winning on the Amistad, and still being tricked into going to America. I also learned you should never forget your home and where you come from. This is a sad, happy and sometimes scary story. “Africa Is My Home” is an informative and interesting book. I recommend it to kids and adults who like historical fiction.
