    "Introducing children to American History involving slavery can be touchy. A book that helps bridge that gap is Chains. It is about the fight for rights and freedom. It can really help younger students understand a very difficult time in America. "

    "This was a heart wrenching and wonderful read. I recommend it thoroughly for those who want to explore the troubles and triumphs endured by those who have had to fight for their freedom. It shows the turning of the time and just how integral a few people can be in a revolution."

    "My daughter had to read this for school so I decided to pick up a copy for myself. I am glad I did. The story is so emotional and really touched my soul. The characters had a lot of depth and the world was beautifully constructed even though it was about something as ugly as slavery. I couldn't put the book down. "

    "Marley Dias' book drive is one of my favorite places to learn about new books. Recently I wanted to learn about black girl culture so I picked up the book "Chains" from his book drive. The book was very well written and really brought out the feelings of the characters. I truly felt like I could be in their place. I loved the book and hope to get the chance to reread it soon!"

    "My experience as a librarian helps me again, as I know that Laurie Halse Anderson's YA novels are renowned for being excellent to begin with ("Speak" being her most well known title). "Chains" is an historical fiction title, and is a National Book Award finalist."
