5 posts | 10 read | 9 to read
Twelve-year-old Charlie is down on his luck: His sharecropper father just died and Cap'n Buck -- the most fearsome man in Possum Moan, South Carolina -- has come to collect a debt. Fearing for his life, Charlie strikes a deal with Cap'n Buck and agrees to track down some folks accused of stealing from the cap'n and his boss. It's not too bad of a bargain for Charlie... until he comes face-to-face with the fugitives and discovers their true identities. Torn between his guilty conscience and his survival instinct, Charlie needs to figure out his next move -- and soon. It's only a matter of time before Cap'n Buck catches on.

I fell in love with little Charlie. He was trapped and then he was brave. The language was perfect. I‘d like to listen to an audiobook. Really great read.

What a great book for middle grade students. An intriguing story told in first person by 12 year old Charlie Bobo, as he somewhat unwillingly becomes part of a mission to capture a slave family who escaped to Detroit, and return them to South Carolina. It will make a great classroom read-aloud and is perfect for children who enjoy historical fiction or action adventure stories.
