This inspirational girl is amazing. She is a house slave, not normally subject to the usual horrific treatment of slaves but does not know who her family is or if she has one. She has a limp and a stutter which subjects her to ridicule as a dummy by her owners and other slaves. But she is wicked smart and has learned how to read and write on the sly and is smarter than all the others. Her story is so inspiring and makes me appreciate my education that I am very, very, glad that I read this book.
