Group status: Welcome to Fully Booked! We are busy eating Pringles, chatting about books and playing a few games!

Most of us are here but not all so watch this space!

Title: Buffalo Soldier
Author: Tanya Landman
Winning Year: 2015

Charley, a young African-American slave from the Deep South, is freed at the end of the American Civil War. However her freedom is met with tragedy after her adopted mother is raped and lynched at the hands of a mob, and Charley finds herself alone with no protection. In a terrifyingly lawless land, where the colour of a person's skin can bring violent death, Charley disguises herself as a man and joins the army. Trapped in a world of injustice and inequality, it's only when Charley is posted to Apache territory to fight "savage Indians" that she begins to learn about who she is and what it is to be truly free.
