Title: Meet Addy
Series: An American Girl: Addy #1
Author: Connie Rose Porter

Addy Walker's family is planning a dangerous escape
from slavery in the summer of 1864. But before they can make the escape, the worst happens--Master Stevens decides to sell some of his slaves, including Poppa and Addy's brother, Sam. Addy and Momma take the terrible risk of escaping by themselves, hoping that the family eventually will be together again in Philadelphia. Set during America's own struggle over slavery, the Civil War, Addy's story is one of great courage and love--love of family and love of freedom.


Meet Addy is about a young girl who lives with her baby sister, older brother, and her mom and dad. She and her family are slaves on a plantation, and Addy wakes up one night to her parents talking about fleeing to the North for safety and freedom. However, her mother thinks it will be best to wait. But, when their owner decides some things of his own, Addy’s mother ends up taking Addy and running away.

This is a very heartfelt story of a young girl who must withstand a horrible existence until she’s given the chance to run for her freedom. I really enjoyed this book a lot. I loved Addy, and how brave and smart she was! This one was also sad at times as well, and I hope everything works out for them.

I look forward to reading more about Addy and her family.
