This book was a very good, quick read. It covers the Biblical story of Miriam, and involves a fictional friend. The book is written as teh viewpoint of this friend, named Laila. The storyline is about the conflict between the overbearing Egyptians adn the Israelites they made slaves of. The parents of Miriam and Laila aer shown as concerned about the influence of the hard lifestyle on their children, because the whole generation of Laila and Miriam were forced inot growing up early. I would definitely recommend this book to any pretten or teen!
