This book includes the topics of friendship, family relationships, acceptance and change—all themes any quality historical fiction must display. These fifth graders are caught up in coming of age changes and events but rise to the challenges with support of their family and the bond of a true friendship. The courage and compassion our favorite new characters embody show today’s young readers that they can have a hand in changing the views of society. I cannot wait to share this novel with my fifth graders and look forward to the rich discussions we will have and the changes I will witness in each of them.
Mrs. Whitsitt visits my 5th grade classroom and is an inspiration to my students. Since she is an educator and spent many years in the classroom, she knows how to reach even the most reluctant writers! She enjoys her time back in the classroom as much as students enjoy her. If you are a middle grades teacher, ask her to come spend some time in your classroom, you will love her too!
Being a child during the Detroit Racial Riots, Whitsitt draws much from her own experiences and emotions and makes it real to her readers. However, this book deal not only with racial prejudice but touches on other differences which isolate and destroy self esteem. Be sure to mark this as "want to read."
