“The last safe house: a story of the underground raildroad” written by Barbara Greenwood and illustrated by Heather Collins

“This unique weaving of historical fact and fiction offers readers a wonderful mix of intrigue, drama, and history, as well as related activities to do at home. Greenwood’s compelling story introduces readers to the Underground Railroad in an accessible and original way, allowing them to get an up-close-and-personal look at this amazing and troubling period of history. Events are recounted from the point of view of two girls, Eliza Jackson, an escaped slave, and 12-year-old Johanna Reid, who hides Eliza and her brother, Ben, until they can safely meet their mother.”
