  6. I have appreciated Andi Cumbo Floyd s previous books and was looking forward to this one, despite the change of style I was not disappointed Because while this is not the same kind of book that Andi has written before, it was still one that reflected her kind heart and her desire for racial reconciliation.Andi created a cast of strong female characters, which was my favorite aspect of this book Mary Steele is a relatable, kind teenage girl who can just happen to talk to a ghost She discovers tha [...]

  11. I don t think I ve ever read a book that started out so seemingly simple and ended up so profound Steele Secrets is the story of a teenage girl who meets a ghost in an unmarked cemetery I could tell from the beginning that this young adult novel would be a good read, even for a 60 year old boomer But the ending was than good The ending moved me powerfully I teared up several times during the last few chapters and sobbed at the end, but in a good way Having gotten to know the characters and cari [...]


  12. I started reading this book because of the mad respect I have for the author and her work I didn t know if I would enjoy it, but I m happy to say that I LOVED it.Let me be clear from the beginning this book has a ghost not scary, though and deals with racism and slavery And while the author has some important things to say about the latter two, her views are woven into the story so well that readers are challenged in subtle ways She doesn t flat out preach her views, and there isn t what I would [...]


  13. Steele Secrets is a riveting story about a girls fight to save an old cemetery The plot starts with a small, but significant incident, and continues to build throughout the book to a dramatic conclusion Mary is relatable as the main character, and the author tells the story in such a way that I found myself drawn into it and sharing it with the characters.As an Australian I found the historical aspect of the story fascinating It made me compare the things I read in the story to our own history a [...]


  14. I didn t know wha to expect when I started reading this book But it was about slaves and I ve always been fascinated with personal stories as opposed to just stiff old numbers On the one hand I want to learn, want to hear the stories, on the other hand it keeps me up at night because it happened to real people and it is happening to real people The horror, sadness and pain in the stories are depressing but need to be told and in the form of a story it brings it so much closer And it needs to com [...]

  19. Healing is painful This is a work of fiction, but there is so much truth and real life in here It doesn t end with one big bow becuase life doesn t end that way But it ends with most characters becoming better people It taught me something and gives me lots to keep thinking about.My only complaint isn t so much of a complaint, but a reminder This is a Young Adult novel and so some relationships are left at a shallow depth They could have been explored , but that would have been a different book [...]


  20. From Andi Cumbo Floyd s heart to ours Mary Steele carries us through difficult topics of slavery, racism, rape, abuse, truth and reconciliation You can t change everyone s heart, but you can share the truth of the past and work toward understanding and acceptance A great read for anyone, especially young people who are unfamiliar with the truth about slavery and our nation s history Knowing the truth allows lasting healing, if we let it Steele Secrets
