Product Details

Praise

“The novel splendidly captures the place and time, from the heat and humidity (and lack of air conditioning), to childhood pastimes like roller skating, playing jacks, and drinking Kool Aid…. Although the author uses the terminology of the time to describe race…the story is a gentler read than Mildred Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Children will cheer for Susan’s courage in defying the injustice in her world.” —School Library Journal

“It’s unusual to find a chapter book for younger readers that takes on the painful history of racial segregation and discrimination. By using Susan as the narrator, Cutler lets readers see life under Jim Crow through multiple perspectives….Rebelling against discrimination is only part of this appealing story, but it’s the most memorable part. An enjoyable chapter book with great potential for discussion.”—Booklist
