    I love how this book shows people how horrible slavery was! It's so interesting, and things never stop happening! It makes you feel like you are inside Isabel's head. I just got the other books in the series and I'm SO EXCITED to read them! 😆

    "Chains" tells us about the importance of loyalty, friendship and trust. I like this book because it taught me about historical stuff and I learned a lot about slavery and how cruel it is. When Isabel and her sister, Ruth, are sent to a wealthy family as slaves, they become trapped in their "chains." Basically I think this book is a whole giant metaphor which can also be used in today's society, which made it really relatable for me. Like Isabel, a lot of people today are trapped inside the bonds of modern society which makes it impossible to be ourselves. Also, this book tells us about loyalty, because when Isabel meets a boy named Curzon who will change her life forever, she has to decide where her loyalties lie. I really like this book because the characters are very relatable as well. They are bright, clever and think out of the box. Must read!

    Chains was an engrossing, hair-raising tale told with many details. It was hard for me to stop reading the book! It teaches us a lesson of working hard to accomplish your dream, to be loyal and trust your friends , and the importance of family. It will make you feel grateful for your lifestyle and your family. This emotional roller coaster you go on while reading the book is worth it. This is the best book ever!!!!

    How would you feel if you were promised freedom only to be brutally sent off to another slave master? This is what happened to Isabel, a 13 year old slave and her sister, Ruth. Being the only two left in their family, they had no one to turn to, and no one would defend them when they said they were free. Isabel and Ruth were soon sent to Madam Lockton's home, where they were beaten regularly. During this time Isabel is also offered her freedom in exchange to spy on Mr. Lockton since he was a loyalist, for a rebel. Chains is a powerful story about a slave in the starting of the revolutionary war yearning for freedom. Isabel suffers through immense pain for herself, her sister, and her freedom; never stopping once to think twice. Her story inspired me and it will surely inspire you, which is why I highly recommend you read it!

    Chains is one of my favorite books, the author allows her readers to understand where the characters are coming from. In my opinion the book is a bit depressing, that's what makes the book good. We have the chance to experience what the main character is feeling and how she deals with being inslaved. The book goes from her with her family to being in a very difficult decision which nobody at that age should have too. I recommend reading this book it was a eye opener for me and I'm pretty sure it would be the same for you.

    I just read this book for English. It is amazing. Some parts where a bit gross and violent, and I was very mad because of the cliffhanger, but I really felt like I was in Isabels head. It was cool how I felt like I was back in the revolutionary war. Overall, this may be my be my favorite historical fiction book, though it felt like nonfiction!

    This is a amazing book about the evils of slavery(especially cruel slavery that included terrible masters and unfair and tyrannical treatment to slaves.) I loved this book and hope to read the rest of the series.
