The Underground Railroad (Cornerstones of Freedom)

The Underground Railroad (Cornerstones of Freedom) - R. Conrad Stein Disappointed. I found this first books so charming and fun. This one was kind of a drag in comparison. While I think Ginny learned some lessons, as she revealed at the end, the relationships between the characters on this mission was annoying and bothersome at times. The author, imo, never gives the fodder for Oliver to make the leap from bad to good, and the whole art work is just plain weird.Idea seemed like a good one, but after the first book, I found this to be stale.
