In Sudan, thousands of men, women, and children are in slavery. In Marcus's class, his teacher teaches the whole class about modern day slavery. And that's when his class gets the idea to help people by buying them out of slavery.
While a work of fiction, Dream Freedom is based on true events. Slavery still does go on even in our modern times. And there really was a class of students trying to do something about it, as is explained by the teacher in the end of the book.
While I will admit some chapters, for whatever reason, didn't keep my interests. It may have been the jumping from character to character, but that usually doesn't bother me. For the most part, though, I did enjoy this book and think it is important. I really liked the character Marcus and I think it is wonderful the author used her writing talent to bring attention to modern slavery.
