Sally Harrison and her family are slaves on a Georgian plantation. When her father finds out that the master plans on selling Sally, her older brother, and a couple of other children, the family escapes to northern Florida, where the Seminoles live. Sally struggles with adjusting to the Indian way of life, but soon finds comfort in her new home.

This book is an easy read for middle grades, and readers will learn about the history between black slaves and the Seminoles. Told from Sally's point-of-view, one is immersed in the way of life of a 12-year-old slave and the pursuit of freedom. ( )

This was one of my books that I was assigned to read and I wasn't really excited to read it. The cover didn't look very interesting. The first night I read it, I was proven wrong. The book was breathtaking. Brenda Woods added beautiful, detailed discripstions that made me smile. Meet Sally May and her family--a mother, a father, and her brother, Abraham. They pick cotton every day--slaves. Sally May and her family would love to leave this horrid land and live somewhere else...a particular place she could call home. One rainy night a visitor comes to talk to Sally May's father, talking about an escape. The next day, they start running way, feeling free. Before Sally May knew it, she loses someone very close to her and comes to a village with Indians. Is this her new home? ( )

This Sequoyah is a quality novel. The story begins with the family as slaves. They ran away from their master becuase he was going to send the children, Sally and Abraham away. The plot thickens when Dessa, Sally's mother gets bitten by an alligator. Will she live or not? She lost so much blood that she died there in the swamp. The family then escapes to the Seminole tribe and is accepted into their tribe.

Sally made up songs to help her work not seem so tedious and also to help her morn for her mother. The Seminole showed an attitude of acceptance we all should exhibit. They accepted the slaves into their homes. This is a concept we want to teach the children.

Have the children how to write a poem or a song. Teach them how to grind corn.

From the Publisher
Coretta Scott King Honor-winner Brenda Woods brings to life a chapter of American history that is seldom explored. Sally Harrison and her family are slaves on a plantation in Georgia. But when Master decides to sell Sally and her brother, the family escapes to seek shelter with a tribe of Seminoles who are rumored to adopt runaway slaves.
After a perilous journey, Sally and her family find the Indian village. While her father and brother easily adjust to Indian ways, Sally can't seem to find her place--the little songs she makes up don't fit with her new life. Will she ever let go of the past and fully join the tribe?

Reviewers praised Brenda Woods's Red Rose Box saying: "A timeless universal tale about a young girl's road to maturity. An impressive debut." (Kirkus Reviews.) Once again, Woods has written an evocative novel with an intriguing heroine.

About the Author: Brenda Woods's debut novel, The Red Rose Box, won a Coretta Scott King Honor. Emako Blue won the IRA Children's Choice Young Adult Fiction award. Brenda Woods lives in Los Angeles, California.
