Some of the characters are: Corey, Mingo, Mom, Dad, Swan, George, and Mr. and Mrs. Johnston.
Flying Free is a diary of a boy who had just recently become a free person after traveling through the Underground Railroad. This was in the time of segregation and slavery. The main problem for Corey was that his friend Mingo was back at the plantation. I am like Corey because I would worry about my friend if he was still a slave. I am not like Corey because I would not want to be an Underground Railroad conductor.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes knowing what it was like during the Underground Railroad. The ending is only possible in the time of slavery because everything has to do with slavery.
