    1. I REALLY liked this book when I was in junior high, although I haven t thought about it in years.I believe that the family farm in this book was on the underground railroad, and one of the preteen young teenage daughter kept a diary Her diary is this book.I remember it being really good and really tight, and checking it out of the library time after time to read it again.A member of the What s the Name of That Book group helped me find this book Here s a link to the thread topic show 8
