Though thirteen-year-old Mary is happy to keep quiet about the secret instruction she receives at Miss Prudence Crandall’s private school for the daughters of the richest families in New England, Mary’s sister Sarah glories in the fuss she creates when she is openly admitted. When Miss Prudence replaces the school’s white students with little misses of color, all sides of the antislavery movement want to use the school to further their own agendas—with Mary and Sarah caught in the middle!

    " I listened to the audio book when driving home from Colorado. The author, Ann Rinaldi, takes true historical facts and adds a story to it. It is a YA book about a black girl in 1832. A "colored school is opened for girls". It was good! "

    " I learned about what happened to Mary and Sarah at Ms. Crandall's school. Educational for girls is a good thing. It's a shame when people fight against it. "

    " Great book that uses fiction to teach young readers about slavery, abolitionists, the Underground Railroad. Mary must make hard choices in her life but what a difference they make! This one is a quick must read! "
