Summary
Told in letters, the moving sequel to Dear Levi follows eleven-year-old Levi Ives and his best friend, Jupiter, into dangerous territory as they try to save Jupiter's little sister from the slave owners who have recaptured her.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The year is 1853 and eleven-year-old Levi Ives can't wait to cross the wide country to join his brother, Austin, out in the Oregon Territory and escape from boring old Sudbury, Pennsylvania. But life back home suddenly goes from dull to dangerous when Levi's best friend, Jupiter, discovers that his little sister, Darcy, has disappeared, recaptured by slave owners. Levi is white and Jupiter is black, and together they set out into dangerous territory in an attempt to save little Darcy's freedom--and her life. This moving sequel to Dear Levi, told in letters, is rich in history and adventure, a must-have for teachers, reluctant readers, and every Dear Levi fan.
