Format: Hardcover
Fourteen year old Caroline Whitaker has always known she is different from her brother, Johnny, and sister, Georgia Ann. The child of a master and his slave, but fair-skinned enough to pass as a white girl, at age two Caroline was taken into the Master's house to be raised as a member of the family - for a price, though she does not know what the price was, only that her birth mother died shortly after. Now, it's 1780, and the Revolutionary War is raging violently throughout the land. Caroline, her "mother," and her sister are confined to one upstairs room while the British occupy their house. Caroline has seen her friend hanged, and her Patriot father has been thrown into jail. Now, her brother, who was once a Loyalist but has switched sides, is injured and needs to be brought home. Caroline and her Black grandmother, a slave, set out to fetch him home. It is on that journey that Caroline learns just what the price of her acceptance as a Whitaker was: Her mother was shipped off to be sold as a slave to a West Indies plantation. As Caroline comes face to face with the horrors of war, she struggles to accept the truth, and the shadows within herself. This book was the best one I ever read by Ann Rinaldi. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who either liked her other books, or who likes historical fiction. It tells the story of the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, a much more brutal one than the war in the North.

I've read almost all of Ann Rinaldi's Historical Fiction books, and so far I can say, any Ann Rinaldi is a good Ann Rinaldi. her name is a guarantee that is it a super-good book! Cast Two shadows is my number 2 favorite Ann Rinaldi Book. Hang a Thousand Trees with Ribbons is definitely the best. ( I sent a copy of it to Ann Rinaldi, and she autographed it for me!!) If you've read any of her others and liked them, you will love this one! (sorry if I'm to excited, but I really, really love her!)

I thought that this book was very good. It included an adored older brother, a bratty sister, and many other typical Rinaldi trademarks. I like some of her books better, but this one was still great. I recomend it to anyone who has read "The Fifth of March".
