Book Reveiw
* What do you like and dislike about the book Steal Away Home?

What I dislike about the book is that 2 people died in it.What I like about the book is that it told me about how some people lived in Kansas 1851 and that slavery was even more horrible then I thought.

*What do you have in common with the characters?

What I have in common with Dana is that we both are very noisy about thing that are going on in this world.What I have in common with Miz.Lizabeth is that we both are against slavery.

*What does this have to do with your life?

What this has to do with my life is that if black like Miz.Lizabeth didn't fight slavery would still be going on and if we didn't fight or try to make peace we would"nt have learned to read, write, and if we didn't fight we would of never saw our family again. That what it has to do with my life

Dana was pealing the wall paper off the wall wishing that she could have a cushier job when she drilled a hole in the wall and saw a little room and a cot with a fool grown skeleton in it! suprised but the real thing on Dana's mind, how did she/he die?
