Dear Reader,

This is one of the early American Girl books, written by African American author Connie Porter before the enterprise was taken over by Matel. Addy was the first non-white American Girl character. The story of Addy's escape with her mother from a plantation in North Carolina is well-told and exciting. The date of the escape is 1864, one of the final years of the War Between the States. Before their escape, Addy's father and her brother Sam are sold. This promises an adventurous and suspenseful story line for the rest of the series.

I found I had three books around that shared a theme of freedom so, I'm making a quick little package. This is a nice historical novel for Black History Month. It's time to let it fly out into bookcrossing to find more readers.

Thank you so much, cordelia-anne! I'll see if I can send this one out again during Black History month. American Girl books are always popular.

Addy was released out in front of the American Doll store at 129 Market St by a surrogate releaser as I'm still housebound (hoping to get out today finally after a month of several illnesses, one after another. Themed release on the second to last day of Black History month.

I really liked this book because I was interested in slavery.
I thought it was very exciting when Addy and her mother escaped from slavery.
I can't wait to read the next book!
