Publisher's Description

Newbery Honor-winning author, Jean Fritz, takes us on a journey to the Underground Railroad.

Brady has never been trusted with secrets, until now. When he discovers an Underground Railroad station near his family's farm, he is forced to make his own decision about the slavery controversy. Whatever his decision may be, he knows that this is one secret that must be kept.
