Gr 9 Up—In this stunning portrayal of a white French family who will do anything to maintain their iron grip around
the necks of the enslaved Black people on their antebellum Louisiana plantation, Williams-Garcia has crafted an
intense saga. Masterly characterization, nuanced machinations, and incisive language are on full display in this
novel that also sheds light on current conversations about race and power.

This is the first time I've come across a historical fiction about the Black Panthers, and I loved it! Appropriately thoughtful in its subject matter, and the precocious narrator charmed me to no end. A tiny, underappreciated work of art.
