In the hall I heard Captain Ivers shout, If they won’t open up, bust down the door, To. .t have any trouble doing that. The only other way out of the room was the chimney. I jumped over to it, ducked my head down, and looked up. At the top I could see a patch of blue sky. The chimney looked like it was big enough to take me. Mr. Fatherscreft, I said, I’ll be waiting at the church.

Currently reading this book aloud to 4th graders at our local elementary school. They can't get enough of it! Several have checked out their own copies at the library so they can read ahead on their own. The Collier brothers never disappoint with their fine story-telling and meticulous attention to research.

This story was over before it began. I was so happy to find that it continued in other books. Thanks to the Colliers for enlightening us on slavery in the northern colonies and yet giving us a bit of history. I good read for fictional history buffs.

A very good book for early teen boys. I found the beginning a bit slow but was captivated towards the middle of the book.

I use this book in my classroom to supplement our study of the Revolutionary and Civil wars. It is a great one for the boys--they can relate to the main character.

Hi there mom I'm on tv lol lol lol lol I am really funny ha ha ha ha ha ha
Have you ever wondered what it took for a slave to buy their freedom? Well this is what happens in Jump Ship to Freedom written by Collier & Collier that focuses on slavery from the past. Daniel is an African-American boy who is owned by the Ivers which are his slave owners. His dad fought in the civil war and got soldier notes in return for his hard work. Daniel goes through a long journey and does whatever it takes to buy his freedom.

Daniel's father gave Daniel's mother the soldier notes that he earned so she can hold on to them. The soldier notes are worthless because they haven't been converted to valuable money. At first Daniel doesn't have the soldier notes because his slave owner Ms.Ivers stole them from his mother and hid them in her room. Daniel successfully manages to find them and holds onto them and tells his mother that he got them. He does this by distracting Ms.Ivers into a small fire that he created because she is scared of fires.

Unexpectedly Ms.Ivers finds out that the soldier notes are missing and she thinks that Daniel took them. Ms.Ivers husband Captain Ivers his other slave owner calls him over to his ship for no reason and doesn't tell him where he is taking him. He accuses Daniel of taking the soldier notes and beats him with his whip. Daniel thinks he's going to New York to convert his soldier notes into valuable money but he finds out he isn't and is going to St. luticia. He finds this out by overhearing a conversation that Captain Ivers nephew Birdsey had with him. Daniel was good friends with Birdsey until he finds out that Birdsey isn't a true friend and doesn't tell Daniel that he is going to be sold. This is surprising for Daniel because he trusted Birdsey.

Birdsey ends up drowning in a horrible storm that occurs during his journey. So Daniel just keeps that secret to himself and doesn't even dare tell Captain Ivers. Daniel ends up being questioned by Big Tom a member of the crew on the ship if he stole the soldier notes and he says no when he actually did, and hid them under the cherry wood chest under the ship on the crew's quarters. Even though Big Tom was African-American Daniel still didn't trust him because he associated with Captain Ivers and was afraid that he might tell him. I can connect with this because even if I have a best friend I won't tell him any of my secrets because he might tell other people. This affects Daniel a lot because now Big Tom and Captain Ivers would think he's suspicious of holding and being responsible for the soldier notes.

I recommend this book because it shows actual ways slaves were treated and how the slave owners treated them. Also because this book teaches you a lesson on trying your best no matter what just like Daniel did to buy his freedom. I think young adults should read this because it contains some violence. But otherwise they can read it to learn a little bit about how slavery was during that time. In my opinion i'm interested in this book because when I read it I couldn't stop because it gets interesting by every page you read. Collier & Collier did an excellent job on writing this book because actual words were used when Daniel and his slave owner Captain Ivers spoke. Eventually Daniel escapes and jumps aboard. But did he make it to shore? Did he survive or die? The answers lie on the book.
