  1. Eliza Hates LanndryWith a long stick, Eliza traced each letter carefullyinto the muddy bank of the mighty Mississippi RiverEliza wants What was she thinking Being educated was not allowed Staying free wasn t an option, even if you had papers Anyone, anywhere, could turn you over to a slaver For Eliza freedom meant being protected by her parents, a sponsor, a lawyer, and living at a jail while her family waited for their day in court She had to stay close to her family and not draw attention to [...]


  2. Freedom s Price is a very engaging story about Eliza, the daughter of Dred Scott yes, from the historic Dred Scott decision MacColl creates a story that sucks you in and you really end up rooting for the Scotts and hoping they get their freedom, even if you know how their story really ends from history lessons MacColl does a good job integrating all the various things that African Americans, slaves or free, had to deal with in pre Civil War America a desire for freedom, abuse from whites, slave [...]


  3. Freedom s Price is the first book I ve read in the Hidden Histories series I worked in an elementary school library for a number of years, and I would have definitely added this book to the collection The authors spin an interesting tale based on the life of Dred Scott and his family with his oldest daughter Eliza as the main character Young readers will be inspired by Eliza s bravery and her strong determination The authors added notes about the history and resources they studied to create a fa [...]


  4. I m pretty sure I learned about Dred Scott in school but what do I remember now Nothing History facts always slip through my mind like it s a sieve unless I read them as stories My 9 year old son bought this book and loved it, so I gave it a try It s historical fiction written from the perspective of Dred Scot s daughter Eliza, and it gives an eye opening perspective on what it was like to be young, black, and almost free in St Louis in 1849 Now I know about Dred Scott, what he did, and why it [...]


  5. Eleven year old Eliza Scott, daughter of Dred Scott, lives in a jail cell with her family in St Louis, Missouri and awaits the trial that will determine whether her family will be free, but in the meantime she does some dangerous things that could undermine everything her parents have done to help her be free The theme of a united family and the efforts parents will go to to protect their children was very evident in this story Now I d like to review the Dred Scott decision and will look for fut [...]


  6. An okay middle grades young adult book about a young black girl from a family fighting their master s widow for freedom in pre civil war days at the time of the Dred Scott decision.


  7. Eh It was an enjoyable enough read, but I wasn t 100% convinced that Eliza acted like a 12 year old, and also, like a 12 year old in the mid 1800s.


  8. This was an excellent story I was on edge a great deal of the time because I feared for the protagonist in the story This was a time in which being bold and out spoken was absolutely a no no She irritated me a lot, but I had to realize she was very young and naive just as I once was When you lack the experience her parents were exposed to, and they shielded her from much of the world s evilness I guess you could easily be as cocky and head strong as she portrayed Great historical rendition.



  9. Eliza Scott has a difficult family life while her family awaits the decision of the judge in her father and mother s case Harriet and Dred Scott are waiting to see if they will be awarded their freedom Both of the parents are working in St Louis, but the family has to live in the jail and are released during the day Eliza and her younger sister Lizzie go with their mother when she washes clothes, and Eliza particularly is fond of going to Miss Charlotte s to work, since she treats her slaves so [...]


  10. What is worse than being a slave Being not slave not free Eliza Scott is eleven years old and the daughter of Dred Scott, the former slave who sued his owner and whose case went all the way to the US Supreme Court Since one court found Scott and his family to be free, they cannot be returned to their slave owner during the time of the legal appeal, but they also can t be allowed to live the life of free people with the right to travel and perhaps disappear Eliza finds the situation to be extreme [...]


  11. While this piece of historical fiction was interesting to me as an adult reader, I am not certain that it would hold the interest of a 10 12 year old, the intended audience It fictionalizes the experiences of Dred Scott s 11 year old daughter in pre Civil War St Louis during the time when Scott is suing a past owner for his freedom It is interesting to see through a child s eyes the battle that her parents are fighting as early social activists The novel is the second in the series Hidden Histor [...]


  12. Another well researched novel in the Hidden Histories series This time the focus is on Eliza, the oldest daughter in the Dred Scott family A fast paced narrative that embeds the history of St Louis and the politics of slavery into a compelling story Although Eliza s foolish bravery is unrealistic for the time period, this is an informative story that helps young readers understand the perils of the past.
