"Hadley, Virginia, 1954"--Cover.
In 1955 Hadley, Virginia, twelve-year-old Dawnie Rae Johnson, a tomboy who excels at baseball and at her studies, becomes the first African American student to attend the all-white Prettyman Coburn school, turning her world upside down. Includes historical notes about the period.
I really enjoyed this book because it was one of the few books that I read that teach me an important lesson that I will always use for the rest of my life. I learned from peoples mistakes and learned about actual events that happened in real life. I think people of all ages will enjoy this book and I hope they learn the lessons I have learned about racism and hope.
