Summary Moa, a fourteen-year-old slave, gets caught up in the most significant slave rebellion in Jamaican history.
Jamaica, 1760. Moa, a fourteen-year-old slave, has only ever known life on the Frontier sugarcane plantation. Awoken in the middle of the night, he hears that the rebel revolt will begin on Easter Sunday. They will fight for freedom, for themselves and other enslaved people in the nearby plantation. Before they can escape Moa and his friend Keverton must face their first task: kill their overseer, Misser Donaldson. -- adapted from back cover
