Written by: Francis Bok with Edward Tivnan
My Rating 1-5 Stars:
This is a book full of struggles, slavery, genocide, faith, hope, and many more
things in Francis Bok's escape to slavery. It was a normal day in 1986,
Francis was told by his mother to go to the market to sell eggs and peanuts.
What he didn't know was that day would also be the day he became a slave. This book is a captivating
story about how he became a free man. Today, Francis lives in Boston and has made many speeches
in American for the American Anti-Slavery Group.
I had to read this book for a summer assignment for my Civics class and I am very gratefull to my
teacher who assigned it. It has got me to participate in the student S.T.A.N.D organization. It has
also got me to go on freerice.com, which is a vocabulary learning website that donates rice to Sudan.
The book is a great read for every young adult out there. They need to know what is happening in Sudan
and they need to know more about genocide.
