The Book of Negroes is a historical novel that tells the story of a slave named Aminata Diallo. The book is about how she makes it to Canada and how her life changes once she is there.This book is about how Aminata makes it to Canada after being enslaved for 14 years in Africa. I enjoyed reading about her journey because it was an interesting one. She was captured at age 4 and forced to endure barbaric treatment in Africa until she was 13 when she was

Lawrence Hill has created a lively and thought provoking novel about the lives of three African American brothers. This novel takes the reader on a journey of their past, present, and future.This book is beautifully written and is an easy read. It's an important book that uncovers the discrimination African Americans face in America today.

The Book of Negroes is a great book. It has a lot of great stories and important information about slavery. It's about a girl named Aminata Diallo who was from Senegal in Africa. She ended up in South Carolina, where she worked on the plantation and eventually became the owner of some land. The book shows what life was like for slaves in America, and how they still struggle with racism today.I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about slavery
