This book was surprisingly short, finished it in one day, unusual of me, but the story I'll never forget, bringing back the title, it is verrrrry terrifying and very dark. Highly recommended PG13 though I'm 12 and reading this as a summer book, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
This story was assigned to me in a college class. It's content is no holds barred, graphic, and intense. I would not suggest kids under 12 reading, and some would probably go with a higher age than that. The endearing story of a small girl wanting to learn to read, as taught by a heroic slave is the items amazing stories are created of. Is this a amazing book? Yes, no doubt. But, again, I caution the age it is ready for-do not be fooled by the little book with few pages. It says lots in few words.
Every person, 10 years and older, should read this book. It helps you understand how really rough slavery in the USA really was. And although it's a novel, it's based on a real incident. Please read this one, and the novel Sarny, also by the same author. The book, Sarny, is a sequel to Nightjohn.
