Julilly is a 12 year girl African-American, who wants to escape from slavery. Julilly is tall for her age and she might have to start working with woman instead of kids her age because she is so tall for her age. If she works with the woman and not with kids she has to work longer and harder. Julilly was just bought from a different plantation, got separate from her mom and now going to the new plantation in a different country. She demonstrates bravey and courage in her journal to the new plantation. For example on pg # 57 Lester explains how," She helped me out of a swamp when the chain was round my ankle." This took some courage and bravery to risk helping Lester when Fat Sims was nearby ready with his whip.
