Julilly is a young girl, and a slave. She lives on a cotton plantation in Virginia until she's sold and taken to Mississippi, where the food is scarce and the slave boss is very mean. She befriends Liza, a girl who is badly crippled from her beatings and the two decide to escape to a country they've heard about where slaves are free: Canada. When a white man from Canada arrives and secretly gives them information about how to make the trip, the plan is sealed. Reproducible chapter questions, plus comprehension questions, a story summary, author biography, creative and cross curricular activities, complete with answer key.
