My student's loved the story.
In Corey's first Diary, we learned about slave life, and the heartbreaking conditions they were forced to endure. Now Corey and his pregnant mother have managed to get to Canada, with the help of the Underground Railroad, where they can be free. Corey's parents find jobs, buy some land and build a home. And best of all, Corey can now go to school and learn to read and write without having to hide it.
But Corey misses his friend Mingo, who is still living as a slave down south, and writes him a letter encouraging him to come to Canada too. When he sees a poster with Mingo's picture on it, saying he's wanted by the slave catchers, Corey knows that Mingo is on the run and fears for his friend's safety.
Corey's family prepares to celebrate Christmas in their new home, but Corey is about to have even more to be thankful for this holiday. Readers will find out why, when they read FLYING FREE, the heartwarming story of people finding a new life in a community where they can live proud and free.
