Book #82. All finished.

My mom passed this book along to me a few weeks ago.
It's awesome.
But it's been messing with my heart."This book tells the story of the life of Aminata Diallo, born in Bayo, West Africa, in 1745 who at the age of 11 is captured and sold into slavery. Detailing her struggles as a slave on a South Carolina plantation and her efforts to regain her freedom, the story is both harrowing and awe inspiring."

How very, very lucky am I to have been born at this time in history and in this country?
