Teen Fiction LESTER
Summary: “The horror of slavery . . . the excitement and terror of escape and the problems of the newly free are dramatized in three stories based on actual historical incidents. . . . Memorable.” —School Library Journal “Lester here personalizes and vitalizes the essence of freedom.” —Booklist In two short stories and one novella, Julius Lester has created a rich, layered, and ringing portrait of the slave experience in America, and of the perseverance and bravery it took to seek out love and freedom during that time. Included is the tale of Ellen and William Craft, the escaped slaves who became famous abolitionists. And new for this edition, in honor of the book’s twenty-fifth anniversary, is a thought-provoking author’s preface about freedom and empathy. This Strange New Feeling is historical fiction at its finest.
