Chains | Laurie Halse Anderson

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson is a historical fiction novel that was published in 2008 and is a Scott O‘Dell Award Book winner. It is about a 13-year-old Isabel who is an African American slave trying to fight for her and her sisters freedom during the American Revolutionary War. I think this could be a good novel for higher grades.

Having a few days away.
Fancy hotel room, generally lovely, but hopeless absence of reading light leaves me unimpressed.

Would it be weird to phone hotel in advance next time and ask for a room with a reading light?

Oryx I'm always annoyed by the lack of light in hotel rooms. Why do they do it? Not everyone wants mood lights! 😊 2d

charl08 @Oryx I remembered (too late) my little portable reading light - will have to pack next time. 17h
charl08 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag yes, just have to remember! 17h
charl08 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks still good to get the uninterrupted reading in! 17h

I like this book tell a true story in a fun and engaging way. I like the pictures that are in are illustrated.

This book is about the life of George Moses Horton and how he became the African American to publish in the South and protested slavery by poetry.

The fact that they had to trick the Dogs of the people who wanted them killed is so sad.

I feel like this is a story that all children need to learn about, and I always have interesting learning about it. I think you can also learn about it through text books and videos and movies. You could use this book as a starter for learning about her and then eventually watching the movie films about it.
