Slave Dancer: A Novel (Isis Large Print for Children Cornerstone)
Slave Dancer A Novel - Isis Large Print for Children Cornerstone Author:Paula Fox Kidnapped by the crew of an Africa-bound ship, a thirteen-year-old boy discovers to his horror that he is on a slaver and his job is to play music for the exercise periods of the human cargo.
This is the story of a young flute player shanghai'd to 'dance the slaves' on a slaving ship. Very compelling, not great literature but definitely a page-turner, Newberry Medal winner - it's definitely young adult lit, so it's graphic but not salacious, once again I learned about things I wish hadn't happened.
