Title and Author: The Student and the Slave by Annie Douglass Lima
Name of Reviewer: SDCB
Reason for choice of rating:
Tough topics like slavery.
Sometimes what comes after The End isn't necessarily happily ever after. That's the case with Bensin and his sister, who escape a life of slavery only to discover freedom has its own hardships. Also, Coach Steene goes from a free man to a slave, and while the transition is difficult, it gives his character a real chance to shine. What I loved most about this book was the growing relationship between Steene and his owner. This is a great book of learning kindness, humility, and patience. Highly recommended.
Teens and adults, but especially boys because of the male leads.
