Review

...Ann's journey to freedom is harrowing and heartbreaking, and of course, so many stories like hers were anything but happy. This is a very cool book for young readers (8-12) who are learning more about slavery and its terrible place in our nation's history. There's some great backmatter, too, including an author's note with lots of information, discussion points and a glossary.-- "Girls Read the World"

What if the I Survived series focused more on female, historical heroines? That's what the new Girls Survive series sets out to do. . . .Each book in the series--which includes books on the Titanic and the Civil War--includes historical context, discussion questions, and glossaries for those inclined to the historical side.-- "Barnes & Noble Kids, 5 Books for Fans of the I Survived Series"

5.0 out of 5 stars Part historical fiction, part adventure story!
By Susanne on January 25, 2019
Ann Fights for Freedom is part historical fiction, part adventure story. According to Smith in the back of the book, “When I wrote this story… I wanted to tell a realistic and accurate story, yet still write a book that children could enjoy. I also wanted to show many different kinds of people working together to lead enslaved people to freedom and to fight for equality.”
Multicultural books such as this is an important way to help students to gain a better understanding of both their own culture and the cultures of others. It’s also a suspenseful and exciting read.
The beautiful full page illustrations throughout the book by Alessia Trunfio are done in tonal black and white. The text is printed on pages to look like parchment paper. This all adds to the historical context of the book.
“I hope this story makes you hold your breath and cross your fingers for Ann. I also hope you learn a bit about history. Maybe you will work with others to fight for what you think is right,” Smith said. “Maybe YOU will be an everyday hero too.”
