i think that this book is very good and interesting and it makes you think over and over is this really how they treated the Malaga Islanders back then or did this really happen? It's a good book and it draws marvelous conclusions and events. But it's somewhat confusing so you need to read the book like 2 times to really understand it. Also, it's very good with putting you inside the character like if i was Turner i would tore Wiliis and his little behind up. It also has challenging vocabulary but it's good to learn the things in it and it is an extremely amazing book. Cudo's to Gary Schmidt!!!!!!!!
This book is based on the fate of Malaga Island in Phippsburg, Maine in the early 20th century. It is a deep and intriguing story of racism and friendship. This book broadened my history and view of my community and awareness of how much we have gown in the past hundred years yet the work we still have to do. Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy challenges the reader to look upon their own views and conceptions of racism.
