Weaver is Mattie's best friend, they are so much alike.
Weaver is the first black child born free.
Weaver also wants to go to college; his mother has been saving money for his college tuition.
A Northern Light has its ups and downs.
The thing I hated most was it got confusing and they dragged on about Mattie's life to much.
One thing I loved was there was always something going on always something new and interesting.
