The Letter Writer

Author: Ann Rinaldi
Genre: Life, childhood
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Historical fiction
Number of pages: 216
Time period: 1800's
Main characters: Harriet, Nat, Violet
Exciting events: A huge slave revolt
Passage from book: He came to me when I was just eleven, Richard Whitehead did, and asked me to be his mother's letter writer.
My overall opinion: I enjoyed it! It was rather violent, I should mention. It's about one of the worst slave revolts of the 1800's. Nat Turner, specifically. But it was interesting!
