Running Out of Night is about a white abused girl and a runaway slave who run away for freedom. They form a great bond during their journey on the Underground Railroad. The story takes place in Waterford, Virginia. The characters travel north. On their way they run into never ending conflicts. They must stay away from slave catchers and Lark's pa.
I liked the growing friendship that develops between Lark and Zenobia on their journey. I also loved the added suspense and problems evolving in each chapter. I really liked the proverbs at the beginning of each chapter foreshadowing the chapter.
I didn't like how little information of Zenobia we are told. The author tells that she is separated from her family but she is an important character and I would like to know more about her. The author writes this book in Lark's point of view and she hasn't had proper education so it is often confusing and distracting with all the improper grammar.
