In his first book for young adults, bestselling author Walter Mosley deftly weaves
historical and speculative fiction into a powerful narrative about the nature of freedom. Forty-seven is a young slave boy living under the watchful eye of a brutal slave master. His life seems doomed, until he meets a mysterious runaway slave, Tall John. The two become inseparable, and Forty-seven soon finds himself swept up in an otherworldly battle and a personal struggle for his own liberation.
Deeply compelling, 47 is a rewarding narrative that will introduce a new generation of readers to one of the most important writers in America.
