Overview

In her dreams, Phoebe twirls through rows of sea island cotton as a white dress blows around her knees like a breeze. As she dances, she loses all memory of being born a slave on an Alabama plantation. She lifts up her feet and flies high above the fields, as light as air. Before her a single white star shines.

Thirteen-year-old Phoebe has always dreamed of leaving her life as a slave behind. She has heard whispers about a secret path to freedom, and she has seen what can happen to those who take it and fail. But freedom means more to Phoebe than anything, and when she meets Liney, a strong young woman who picks cotton next to her, they form a plan to escape together.

One night, Poebe, Liney, and Liney's two small children flee under cover of darkness. Following clues from the songs and stories they have heard, the runaways elude slave catchers and reach the first stop on the Underground Railroad. It is only one safe house in a chain that leads all the way north to Canada. But between them and freedom, lie miles and miles of unfriendly country and dangers too horrible to imagine.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Canadian writer and teacher Schwartz tells the story of Phoebe, a thirteen-year-old slave on an Alabama cotton plantation. As she labors in the cotton fields, Phoebe hears persistent whispers about the mysterious Underground Railroad and constant rumors of the outcome of slaves who risk this means of escape. At the heart of Phoebe's story is not the physical mistreatment of the slaves, an ongoing background theme, but rather the fate of her family. Under slavery, black families were routinely torn apart. Young children were separated from their parents, and couples were torn from each other. Phoebe watched as her siblings were sold, never to be seen again, but she has been lucky enough to remain at home with her parents. When Phoebe learns that she, too, is to be sold in an auction, she decides to take the ultimate risk and runs away with her friend, Liney, and Liney's two young daughters. Their goal is freedom across the Canadian border, but to get there, they must travel on a dangerous road for four months, journeying from safe house to safe house, constantly on the lookout for the pursuing slave catchers. Familiar territory to anyone who has read Toni Morrison's powerful novel Beloved (Thorndale, 1987), Schwartz's effort successfully adapts such a story for younger readers. Moving and suspenseful, it is also well researched and historically accurate. This novel would appeal to any teen with an interest in social history and human rights.
