    2. This book was amazing. I knew that back then free African Americans were kidnapped and sold into slavery, but I did not know that it happened so often. Solomon Northup starts out as a free man looking for a job, then two men offer him a job. They travel far and then one night they go into a tavern and the two men put a very strong drug in his drink to make him even more dazed. The next morning he wakes up in a man's slave pen. This man is goes by the name of James Birch. Then Birch sold Solomon [...]

    3. Fiction twin text- Henry's Freedom Box by Ellen Levine- 2007Rationale- I chose this book as my twin text because both stories show the struggle of a man as a slave and their courage to find a better life. Both of these books are very inspiring and since each is focused on one main character I thought this was a great opportunity to compare the two characters situations. The picture book is very moving and I definitely think it would capture my students attention. I thought Henry's Freedom Box wo [...]

    4. This book to me was great yet controversial. Not too many authors write about the topic of slavery and the ending be great. I enjoyed the book because I think it told as much truth as it could. This book can spark discussions/conversations with young and older audiences. The book gave better detail than the movie in my opinion.

    5. I cannot imagine the horror of being born and living free and then being kidnapped and sold into slavery for twelve years, but that horrifying fate is just what Solomon Northup survived. Judith and Dennis Fradin recount Solomon's story in Stolen into Slavery: The True Story of Solomon Northup, Free Black Man ( 2012).Solomon Northup was born free in New York state in the early 1800s. He was educated and worked as a carpenter. He also played the violin. He married and had three children. Then in 1 [...]

    6. I stumbled across this true story in a school book order form. When I ordered it I really had no expectations. I have trouble finding my fifth and sixth grade students nonfiction books that they really like. This one will be a hit. I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Solomon Northup, a free slave in the north, who was stolen and sold into slavery in the south. The story resounded as vvery believable. I in particular liked that mention was made that a lot of southerners believed in treating their s [...]

    7. This was a great alternative narrative about a slave in the 1840s-1860s who was born a free man, then sold into slavery for 12 years. It is a short book (~100 pages) and moves fairly quickly due to short chapters.I would recommend this for middle grade elementary students, especially those who are reluctant to read nonfiction. However, I found at least 3 typos when reading the book. The shoddy editing made me question if all the facts were correct -though the authors explain in the beginning tha [...]

    8. Wow! I never gave much thought to free black people being captured into slavery. This book is an engaging account of how an educated free black man, husband, and father was enslaved but held out hope of one day returning. The book really lets one see the injustices of slavery and made some of the history I learned in textbooks really come alive to show the horrors of slavery while also showing what those opposed to slavery would do to help people like Solomon. Makes me want to read his 1853 auto [...]

    9. I think that this book was inspiring. It teaches you to never give up no matter what happens to you. It is about Solomon Northup who was a free black man from New York who was tricked to go into the South and found himself a sold into slavery, but he never gave up until he was finally set free.

    10. Wow, except for the fact that the material contained in this story was so painful . . . I could say it was wonderful. Read it in one sitting; really could not put it down. Easy-to-read short story.

    11. Review: This book is the best and it goes with school if you are learning about this stuff in school it is about a man named Solomon based on a true story and the time was when you could have slaves but Solomon had a free black family that had some kids and a wife and it was harder to find a job but his wife had found one and got paid for it but Solomon did not he was good at playing music but he did not use that for his job so he had one job one day and then had a different job the other day bu [...]

    12. We had to read this book in Middle School for our Civil War and Reconstruction units in LA and History. I found the book to be slightly lacking only because I read the original text: Twelve Years a Slave, last year. I did think this is a good version for middle-schoolers, many of whom may not understand the complex language or harshness of the original text. Still a great book with a thought-provoking storyline. I would recommend this book to anyone under the age of 14. If you are 15 years or ol [...]

    13. Reads like the movie. I wish it was something I could leave out for my students (4th grade) but there is the mention of sex and I would leave that up to a parent to decide if it is age appropriate for their child.

    14. Stolen Into Slavery by Judith and Dennis Fradin is an excellent work of nonfiction. Nonfiction includes truthful stories about people's lives, historical events, and current events.

    15. Stolen into Slavery is an amazing piece of non-fiction. This true story is about how Solomon Northup was tricked into slavery. The most horrifying part was that Solomon actually survived and escaped from being a slave. Solomon was born free his parents were both free African Americans, neither of them were slaves in the past. One day, he was trying to find a job, and he turned the corner and saw his acquaintance talking to two white strangers who were claiming they needed a violinist. Solomon wa [...]

    16. Stolen into Slavery is an incredible piece of non-fiction literature. Stolen into Slavery is written by Judith and Dennis Fraden. It tells about the true story of Solomon Northup, who inspired the movie and book 12 Years a Slave. This book is about how Solomon was stolen into slavery. Being stolen into slavery means that you were tricked in to going to the south where slavery was permitted. He was originally in a slave plantation where he wanted to stay because there were better conditions and h [...]

    17. Many years ago when I first moved to Lousiana, I took an African-American literature class and read Solomon Northrup's story in his own words. I was mesmerized and deeply troubled to realize the dangers free blacks encountered prior to the Civil War. In my naiveness, I had thought that anyone who was free would always remain free. Clearly, I was wrong. Naturally, I was curious to see if the story of this man, lured from his home in New York state, and then drugged, kidnapped, and sold as a slave [...]

    18. Wendy,I found this book, "Stolen into Slavery" on on Kelly's '' book shelves. I didn't have time to pursue it for the nonfiction assignment but wanted to mention it. I will use it next year as one of my nonfiction twins to "Chains". For this current "twin" assignment I used another fabulous award winning book. My students also each found their own nonfiction book on slavery. I am going to use the RAN idea with chart you showed in the video. I may just have them see part of the video too. I hope [...]

    19. People are capable of doing such terrible things to one another. Imagine having the audacity to steal a free man away from his home, wife, and family and sell him into slavery. Solomon Northup was born free in the state of New York - a state which had even abolished slavery during his youth. Pursuing a job, he found himself traveling alongside who men who drugged him and sold him to a slave trader who - in turn - sold him into a brutal slave situation in Louisiana.He was one of an estimated 400, [...]

    20. This is such an important book to read, based on Solomon Northrup's life, biography and recently a movie, Twelve Years a Slave. I had seen the movie prior to reading the book and then realized that I had purchased this book at a bookfair reading the book is valuable as it fills in some of the gaps in the movie, such as when the white men co-owned/enslaved Solomon which didn't make sense in the movie. This book re-emphasized for me the importance of the written word. His original autobiography g [...]

    21. I thought this book was a very good book. The only thing that brought my rating down was all the bad language. I chose this book because in my class we are required to read two non-fiction books. So I looked on the shelf and found this book and it was short and easy. I would probably not recommend this book because of all the bad language, but other than that it was a very good book. I feel the authors wrote this book because they thought it was a touching story about Solomon Northup, the slave [...]

    22. Solomon a father with a wife and two children is a free slave during slave time having a normal life. But one day he woke up and he realized he wasn’t home with his family then soon realized he was a slave. So Solomon now has to live life as a slave and also has to make friends and find a way to get back home to see his family again. Will Solomon ever find his way home or will he be a slave for the rest of his life.I gave this book a four star rating because this book has a lot thinking what w [...]

    23. A great addition to a classroom library for upper elementary or middle school! Solomon Northup's story is quite intriguing, and I can't wait to read Twelve Years a Slave. It's so interesting to me that his story was written in the 1850's, yet I've only heard of it in recent years. Something else that really made me think - while we hear of many slaves who earned their freedom, we don't often hear of free men who became slaves. How many people carry the same story? And more amazingly, Northup did [...]

    24. I saw the movie and then just had to check out the book, to find out how much was true. Amazingly, the movie was almost all accurate. Not surprisingly, there were several details left out, and there were only a couple of plot points that were significantly changed. Over all, the gist of the story was the same. In my view, the book didn't really plumb the true horrors or emotional impact of what Solomon Northup experienced, but it did a good job of basically presenting the facts. The information [...]

    25. I figured I already knew about slavery, but this book hit me hard. Beautifully crafted, and well-researched. This biography based on the life of Solomon Northup (Twelve Years a Slave), is clearly written for a YA audience, so its a quick and easy read. Yet, the text is deeply arresting. An important note for those considering this book for their classrooms or families - there is quite a bit of strong language that is likely to be offensive to younger readers. Since this text quotes actual people [...]

    26. First: I did not read Twelve Years a Slave, so I cannot compare the Young Reader's Edition with the original.This narrative was both thrilling and horrifying in its depiction of the abduction of a free black man into slavery in the 1840s. This particular narrative is a little more rare than the well-known histories of slaves that were captured in Africa or born in the States. An additional point of interest for me was the discussion of slave owners who were otherwise good men, children of slave [...]
