Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—A timeless work weaving the fantastical with the brutality of the slave trade. This novelette blends Yoruba folklore with the horrors of the Middle Passage. A nameless girl finds herself aboard a ship to an unknown destination. As she carries a small child aboard the ship, she realizes that the harsh conditions she encounters make it difficult for her to care for herself, let alone her mysterious charge. Readers will find this story empowering as it is heartbreaking. The nuanced portrayal of Eja-keke, the wise young girl, and Olu, the accomplice of the captors, add depth to this short work. Lovers of Copper Sun by Sharon Draper or Good Fortune by Noni Carter will likely enjoy this book. This is a quick read that will leave readers wanting more. VERDICT Purchase where Elliott's previous works and books by Nalo Hopkinson and Nnedi Okorafor are popular.—Christina Vortia, Hype Lit, Land O'Lakes, FL --This text refers to the paperback edition.
