In 1859, eleven-year-old Elijah Freeman, the first free-born child in Buxton, Canada, which is a haven for slaves fleeing the American South, uses his wits and skills to try to bring to justice the lying preacher who has stolen money that was to be used to buy a family's freedom.

With flashes of humor, Jiménez Rioja’s Spanish rendition is as suspenseful and dramatic as the original, first published by Scholastic in 2007. From the first-person perspective of 11-year-old Elías, Spanish speakers are exposed to the hardships of runaway slaves and the horrors of slavery. Especially appealing is the credible-sounding dialect, which lends authority to this tale of a spunky youngster navigating the Buxton Settlement, a haven for former slaves. This fine translation preserves both Curtis' humor and emotion. Grades 7-10. --Isabel Schon
