    My Story: Slave Girl

    It was such an amazing book, and so interesting because I knew it was real. Clotee is a great role model, and I think we should all be like her - helping others instead of rescuing ourselves.

    Even though I think that I might be a bit old for these books now I have read quite a few of them in the past and have really enjoyed them. I am curious to know what this one is like. It sounds really good and maybe I will get a chance to read it someday!!!

    Amazing!!! So real and true. It was horrible the way they treated their slaves – just because they were African-American! But this is a brilliant story.Please read it!!
