Teen Book Review

Copper Sun by Sharon Draper

Rating 3

Reviewed by Kevin, grade 10

Copper Sun is about an African who is captured and forced into slavery.  The book goes into detail about how the slaves are treated.  Eventually the protagonist, Amari, makes friends and escapes with them into the free Spanish Florida.  I would recommend this title to any nonfiction lovers.  This was an enjoyable read as far as nonfiction goes, which isn't very far because I much prefer fiction.  I didn't relate to the characters because I have a family and am not a slave.
