Copper Sun

 

Copper Sun Cover

Copper Sun
by Sharon M. Draper

 

Set in the 18th century, Copper Sun tells the story of two protagonists, Amari and Polly. Amari is a fifteen-year-old Ashanti girl living in her village happily awaiting her marriage to Besa. Life is good in their village until one day slave traders invade the village killing much of Amari’s tribe. The survivors are shackled and taken to Cape Coast where they are branded and forced into a slave boat which is headed to the Carolinas. Once there, Amari is sold to a plantation owner and given to his son Clay as his sixteenth birthday present.


It is on the plantation that Amari meets Polly, an indentured servant. The girls become involved in a horrible act of cruelty which affords them the opportunity to flee the Carolina plantation and head toward Florida where they dream of being free.


This book is dedicated to Draper's grandfather and grandmother, Estelle. In Draper’s research of Copper Sun, she actually traveled to the slave castles in Ghana several years ago. Copper Sun is not an easy book to read—many of the passages are heart wrenching and emotionally draining. Yet Copper Sun is a story that must be told. Draper has written a truly moving story—a page turner indeed! Sharon Draper’s Copper Sun is the winner of the 2007 Coretta Scott King Award.
