One day, thirteen-year-old jessie Bollier is earning pennies playing his fife on the docks of New Orleans; the next, he is kidnapped and thrown aboard a slave ship, where his job is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. As the endless voyage continues, Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and inhumanity of the slave trade, but nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror he will witness before his nightmare ends - a horror that will change his life forever.

The horrific was once commonplace. It's good to remind ourselves occasionally, to maintain a steady course toward global human rights and respect for both life and the quality thereof. Though arguably less pervasive today, sadly the horror continues for many.

The Slave Dancer shows what life on an illegal slaver in the mid-1800s was like both for the crew and the slaves. It’s well-written and hold your attention well. I highly recommend it to middle school age kids and up.

A must read for everyone. Great story. Wish it didn't end so soon. Makes you think about the life we have vs how life was.

Good sad-emotionally story...

Good book. I needed something quick for school so I ordered this and got it really quick. I used it the whole semester and I had no problems at all.
