5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plus 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Thoughts from the Author: This eBook will turn upside down what you thought you knew about slavery, which one does not see in a typical crimes against humanity novel/story and gain insight into this era of American history.
It is the first to focus on runnaway slave children and young adults growing up in slavery, cannibalism also plays an important role, a taboo subject within that world... shakes up what is the norm in most crime and fantasy novels.
The e-book narrative and summery of the story line is a teaching moment and can apply to your personal life, or career, (without the white guilt) in addition easy to read and understand.
Effectively this ebook will change your life.

When he gave her the chicken, she taught him how to hold the bird down, pressed up the dull side of the blade pretending to strike repeatedly until the final kill, with a proud smile on her face. “That’s my boy.” However, the chicken quickly jumped out of his grip and into her hands. “Is that how you do it mama?” he said. “Yeah, but next time don’t let get away!”
