Reviews & Summaries
Yep. Really good. Well-written characters, insightful about the time, useful perspective on race during the Great Depression. I'll encourage my son to read this (he loved _Bud Not Buddy_, also by this author) and will definitely read this with my daughter.
The characters are great, the story is compelling, and the history truly comes alive.
Read this book.
