Plantation Nation  
May 23, 2014
Author:  Mercedes King
Category:  Digital: Young Adult
Description:  Sixteen year old Emma Cartwright can no longer tolerate the injustices exercised both on her family's rice plantation and in her personal life. After a slave is beaten to death, thanks in part to Emma, she decides to run away from her South Carolina home and escape an arranged marriage. Fully determined to make a difference in the fight for slaves' freedom, she joins the Union Army disguised as a young man. Emma, now Tom, soon discovers that the War Between the States is more complicated than it seems. Keeping her gender a secret becomes increasingly complicated, especially when she falls in love with her commanding lieutenant. Risking her life as a nurse, courier, and spy, Emma realizes that fighting for a cause she believes in may cost her life.
