Got this book to accompany my Goddaughter to her middle school Literacy night! I think I enjoyed it as much as the middle schoolers. This will definitely be one that I will pass along to some other youngster!

Sharon Draper does an excellent job with "Fire from the Rock" depicting the horrifying times of Civil Rights. Sylvia has the opportunity to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas which is both exhilarating and frightening at the same time. We follow her internal struggle throughout the entire novel. Draper does an excellent job teaching the history of that era and this would be an excellent novel to expose to students. I would definitely use this novel in the classroom for middle school students and high school students.

I was hoping for more history and less silly adolescent talk so I could use this novel in a Common Core Historical Fiction unit for 8th grade language arts. I'll keep looking.

This book shares a wonderful story of the segregation in Little Rock in the 1950s. Take a chance on this book and you will be swept away by the plot.
