Was there any doubt this author could write a bad story? Nope. Just like Golden Boy, Sullivan brings to life REAL issues. Tugging at your heart strings and begging you to think about someone other than yourself. Top pick. Highly recommend.

Two brothers are enslaved on an Ivory Coast cacao plantation, forced to work in horrible conditions for no pay, with no hope of escape. Until the day comes that they have no choice but to make a break for it -- or die trying. This is a fast-paced read with high stakes that teens will enjoy. It really makes you think before buying that candy bar!
