Product Description


'Another piece of intelligent historical fiction from S I Martin. Accurate, interesting, and with a good dollop of humour.' The Bookbag 'Historical fiction at its very best. ... intelligent, engaging, and exciting.' Books for Keeps '... provides plenty for readers to think about; the questions it raises are still pertinent today.' Kate Agnew, The Guardian 'Exciting and convincing ... Highly recommended.' Write Away 'Exciting and tense ... Super stuff.' Jill Murphy, The Bookbag 'Masterful storytelling with a constant undertone of menace. Well written, it succeeds as a story about a young man who finds himself, as much as a story about slavery.' Carousel 'Authentic ... gripping historical thriller.' Northern Echo '... perfect for children ... who are interested in social history and adventure.' First News 'Highly recommended.' The School Librarian
