My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A book based on true events but still a work of fiction. A book that somehow dramatizes events but that makes you think that those things and maybe worse happened to people like Aminata. A book that makes us reflect on the human nature and on how some people think they are superior based on skin color and/or based on which part of the world they are coming from.
Aminata never stops fighting. She never stops believing that her story might make a difference in the terrible world that she is living. Even with all the tragedies that follow her every step of her life journey, she never gives up. She is a true fighter. She is a true human. She is an inspiration for the human kind.
This book has such a strong message, a message about all the terrible things that happened in the world during slavery, a message that we should listen and learn from and not make the same mistakes over and over again. Slavery was, is and it will always be the worst thing that humans can do to humans.
Great read! Five starts absolutely!
