" This book changed my life when i first read it when i was a teen. Till this day this book is my top five greatest books of all time. " said.

" Another good story by Mr.Myers. " said.

" Not my #1 favorite book or anywhere close to that, but nevertheless interesting. " said.

" Published in 1994, but still relevant today. It begins in 1753 in Africa with the capture of 11-year-old Muhammad, who is sent to America as a slave. It follows his family's story, jumping in time from a plantation on Curry Island in SC in 1864 to various places and years, ending with that same piece of land and family in 1994. Inspirational novel, but sad to think that even now, hundreds of years later, the color of your skin makes a difference in how you're treated. " said.

" I really enjoyed this book. I thought it did a great job of tying together the story of the generations of a black family over the course of American history. Myers does a good job of reflecting the thinking of the protagonists in different periods and how they connected to the family's roots. It was a fast read and used some unique literary devices to tie together the family members throughout the book. The ending was excellent. " said.

"I read this book ahead of the upcoming school year because I know it's one of the required readings for my students. I wasn't expecting much since it's a middle-grade book, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a multi-generational story of the Lewis family from 11-year-old Muhammad who is kidnapped from Africa, to Joshua and Lem who fought in the Civil War, to Malcolm who struggles in the present day to figure out his place in not only the history of his family but as a black man. I thought it was beautifully written and would make a great read for any child or adult." said.

" This book is L-A-M-E (no offence Walter) " said.

" Probably actually 3.5. Very interesting story. More to say later. " said.
