Elijah of Buxton (Scholastic Gold) by Christopher Paul Curtis

Eleven-year-old Elijah lives in Buxton, Canada, a settlement of runaway slaves near the American border. Hes the first child in town to be born free, and he ought to be famous just for that. Unfortunately, all that most people see is a fra-gile boy whos scared of snakes and talks too much. But everything changes when a former slave steals money from Elijahs friend, who has been saving to buy his family out of captivity in the South. Now its up to Elijah to track down the thief--and his dangerous journey just might make a hero out of him, if only he can find the courage to get back home.
