Marian Baay reviews SAFE HOUSE by Kathi Macias

Safe House


Reviewed by Marian Baay
~5 stars~*****

In Safe House, Kathi Macias pens a compelling tale about eleven year old Nathaniel who is faced with an unexpected complication to his daydreaming. When reality calls and lives are at stake, he must make an important decision.
It is the summer of 1863. With his pa off fighting in the war, Nathaniel prepares himself for the first summer break without his father. He wonders when he will see him again. His pa and grandpa are abolitionists, but his ma believes it is wrong to break the law by helping to deprive others of their rightful property. He has not yet decided what to think of it himself.
Then Nathaniel discovers a secret which he cannot tell anyone, but it seems like his grandpa already knows…
When danger comes to their town at night, he must grow up fast and take responsibility. Other people’s lives are in his hands. Will he do what is right?

  9. I am so anxious to read this book. I have already liked Kathi's page. KM I can't imagine living when people owned slaves. It is so wrong. And, would be so scary to be helping them to escape. Knowing they would die and maybe those who helped also. Please put my name in the pot. Okay girls, about time you draw my name for something. LOL Love you all. MAXIE mac262(at)me(dot)com
