Winner of this month's Mocha Girls theme, #1 New York Times Bestseller, is The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. This Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award- winning novel chronicles a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

In Colson Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor -- engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America, from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is at once an adventure tale and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.
