Everything you need to understand or teach Copper Sun by Sharon Draper.
In 1738, Amari was a 15-year-old girl with a bright future--happy, betrothed for marriage. However, when European visitors invaded her African village, killing all but the young and strong, Amari's life was forever changed, as she was sold into slavery. Surprisingly, Amari and her new sidekick Polly learned to lean on each other and offer forgiveness and connection as they struggled to locate and grasp their one shot at freedom in Fort Mose, Florida.
