The accumulation of events in a thirteen-year-old's journal shapes the world of New England, 1830, in this Newbery award-winning novel for young adults. A runaway slave tests Puritan notions of justice and mercy as the joys and sorrows of life and death vie for ascendance. Reading with energy and sincerity, Madeleine Potter captures the simplicity of the journal as an art form. The charming poetry of these characters' lives emerges clearly in her realistic cadence and earnest, confessional tone. Distinct characterizations of other speakers exist through the voice of Catherine, the young writer of the journal, saving the reader from a one-dimensional experience.
