In acclaimed author Patricia McKissack's latest addition to the Dear America line, Lozette, a French slave, whose masters uproot her and bring her to America, must find her place in the New World.

Arriving with her French masters in upstate New York at the tail end of the French-Indian War, Lozette, "Zettie," an orphaned slave girl, is confronted with new landscapes, new conditions, and new conflicts. As her masters are torn between their own nationality and their somewhat reluctant new allegiance to the British colonial government, Zettie, too, must reconsider her own loyalties.

I hesitated to check this out as I did not want to read a sad slave story. This is an entirely new aspect as she was a "companion" to a young girl in France and they fled to America during the French/British war. The culture with the early settlers, Indians, fur traders was interesting and she was so smart and resourceful it was a great read.
