Even though it is now 1901, the people of Buxton, Canada (originally a settlement of runaway slaves) and Chatham, Canada are still haunted by two events of half a century before--the American Civil War, and the Irish potato famine, and the lasting damage those events caused to the survivors.

From this book, I learned that people need to be nice to each other even if it is people with different colour skin.

As memorable as Huckleberry Finn, this tale is fraught with foreboding and heart-in-the mouth tension. Like Mark Twain, Curtis mixes humour and high jinks with suspense and evil.

I liked book. In the beggining it was boring but the ending was very sad when Cooter/ The Madman of Piney Woods dies. Overall I would give this book 3 and a half stars!

I really liked this book because it showed a lot of emotion. Another good thing about this book was that it showed how "you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover."

I loved this book so much because it was so descriptive. And you could really understand what the characters looked like.

I really liked this book. It's a little boring in the beginning but later on in the book it get exciting. I like how the book is told in 2 points of view.

I'm not done the book yet but I think this is probably the most amazing book I have ever read and I have read a lot. I think this book is really good because I find myself so exited to turn the page because I'm almost at the part where Benji and Red meet so I just can not wait till I get there
