September's Book of the Month Club Copper Sun by Sharon Draper

After reading Copper Sun by Sharon Draper, I knew this would have to be our very first book discussion for our Book of the Month Club. Draper tells a magnificent story of Amari's journey in the 1700's from a peaceful life in Africa to a strange place called Charles Town. Her tale intertwines mystery, love, friendships, hardships, and hope into a page turning tale. Although this is a fictional story it brings to light many of the trials and tribulations that occurred in early American history.
