This was a great book, but a little too much of fantasy:*)

Weird, disjointed story.

This young adult fiction book was just OK. After reading the first chapter I remembered that I had read this book when I was a young adult/preteen/teen (a long time ago). In this reading I found the book to be somewhat disconnected with characters and plot lines not very well defined. It was a pleasant enough read but I really didn’t learn much about the Underground Railroad, contrary to what you would expect based on the subject matter of the book.
