about

Obi had never forgotten the sounds of his mother's screams on the day he was sold away from her. Making plans to run away to find her was a secret game he played with friend Buka, an old African who lived at the edge of the farm.

When the Civil War began, Obi knew it was time to run -- or be sold again. If he was caught, he'd be killed...or worse. But if he stayed, he might never know freedom.

From Our Editors

In this powerful young adult novel about slavery and freedom, war and peace, Coretta Scott King Honor recipient Joyce Hansen tells the gripping story of Obi, a young slave who gathers up his courage to make a break for freedom -- or die in the attempt! Which Way Freedom? powerfully recreates the 19th century as the disturbing rumblings of the Civil War build to the breaking point -- and one small boy desperately tries to find his mother in the chaos.
