Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Chapter 21 Summary
The Loophole of Retreat
- Home sweet home is a tiny crawlspace above Aunt Martha’s shed.
- And we mean tiny. It's seven by nine feet, about three feet high, and only has room for a tiny bed.
- But it has plenty of room for rats and mice, not to mention little bitey red ants.
- At least Uncle Phillip has built a trap door to the crawlspace so Aunt Martha can send up food.
- Meanwhile, Dr. Flint heads back to New York to find Linda.
