I love the book because it took a lot of bravery for the characters to try and go get their freedom papers. I felt a connection to the character Corey, because he experiences so many feelings and has a great connection with his dad. You might relate to Corey, too, in this same way. I love the ending because it uses music as the background for the reuniting of the family. I feel bad for Corey because he goes through all that pain.
I recommend this book, because the book teaches you to never give up hope. A person with nearly unreachable dreams will love this book. You will want to read it again and again. This book would be most appropriate for second through seventh graders. This book is part of the Dear America series. You will want to read them all.
