Book Review: The Freedom Maze

The Freedom Maze
Deliah Sherman
2011

The Freedom Maze is the story of 13-year-old Sophie who in the summer of 1960 is dumped off at her maternal grandmothers house.  She feels unwanted alone and bored but soon she finds a maze that transports her a hundred years in the past, she becomes a slave child instead of the Caucasian child she was before. 

Sophie spends six months in 1860 though it turns out to only be an hour in 1960 that she goes missing.  She learns that her thoughts on Slavery and the idea that "Slaves" somehow had it easy, and were less than human beings was wrong.  She comes back with a deeper understanding an appreciation for what slavery was, and what slaves went through. 

The Freedom Maze is a historical fantasy, and is very well written.  Young adults who like historical novels or fantasies would really enjoy The Freedom Maze. 

I would highly recommend this book I could not put it down.
