I really enjoyed this book. It was about a slave girl named Clotee, who is 12. She lives in Belmont, Virginia. Her mother has passed away a few years ago, so she lives with her Aunt Tee and Uncle Heb. She works with Aunt Tee in the kitchen. They make food for Mas' Henley. He is their 'master' and he hates almost everything. the two things he loves is his wife, Miz Lily, and his son William. A lot of obstacles come by Clotee, and she might make it and she might not. You should read the book to see what happens to Clotee!
