    **A 2017 OWL AWARD NOMINEE**

    This Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece tells the compelling story of a young slave’s adventures as she tries to win her freedom in the antebellum South.

    Meet Cora, a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Her future looks dim, as she is outcasted by her fellow Africans and entering womanhood. As she befriends a newcomer Caesar, who tells her about the Underground Railroad, the two decide to take the perilous risk and escape. Trouble follows and Cora is pushed to kill a young white boy who tries to capture her. Will they make it to safety before the slave catcher, Ridgeway, finds them?

    In this fictional adaptation, Whitehead reimagines the slave narrative by depicting the Underground Railroad as an actual train network with engineers and conductors operating a series of secret tracks and tunnels beneath the soil. With each stop, Cora and Caeser find different worlds filled with the promise of freedom and the lurking danger that is following them.

    With strong themes of bondage and violence, this title is recommended for readers at a college reading level.
