    This novel will challenge you with its language and its heavy content, but you'll never forget the beautiful story, the inspirational characters, and the insightful look at human nature.

    This is a book we'll read out loud, about a slave girl named Sarny.  The imagery and language in this novel will inspire us to write historical fiction pieces before we begin our "To Kill a Mockingbird" unit.
