Soon Be Free

by Ruby, Lois
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books
Issue: Summer 2000
ISBN: 0689832664

This mystery-adventure uses flashbacks from present day to the antebellum period to tell the story of a 13-year-old who aids escaped slaves. In addition to artfully contrasting contemporary diction with antebellum formality, Lois Ruby blends Delaware Indians into the plot.
