Great Summer Reading!

Time-traveling teens Max Myers and Jinx MacKenzie are called back to a time when America is being torn apart by the issues of slavery in the 1850's. As they hop aboard the Underground Railroad, they run into some amazing characters from history, and follow the ghost train backwards heading into the Deep South. Using a quilt, a vision, and each other - Max and Jinx find themselves on the ultimate adventure that involves famous people who helped others gain their freedom at all costs.

It includes the amazing Ellen Craft, who actually disguised herself as an invalid white man traveling with her servant in order to gain freedom for herself and her husband.

Faith Reese Martin weaves together history, mystery, time travel, action, and suspense. From the slave ships that sold men, women and children like cattle to the ultimate fighters who sacrificed a great deal and risked their lives in the fight for freedom.

This thrilling story is a true lesson in how faith and beauty can come from the depths of sadness and inequality.

Every chapter of Ghost Train to Freedom contains custom artwork that graphically illustrates the story and depicts the hardships humans had to go through in pursuit of the freedom that was rightfully theirs. The book also includes maps, historical backgrounds, and a beautiful quilt with explanations of the quilt codes that gave secret instructions to the runaways. This book is part of the JMP Mystery series.
