Having learned from Mama that the world is filled with things that do what they please like the moon and the cat, eight-year-old Tess wonders why she and Mama are constantly told what to do. They are told when to play, when to eat, and even when to sleep.

But Tess realizes that a person can never truly be owned. The master cannot control her mind or her heart.
This is a tender story that tells of the heartbreak of slavery and one little girl’s powerful plea for freedom.
