Excellent compelling real history

This book is an honest and forthright book about Representaitve John Lewis and his participation in the Civil Rights movement. The events and language are harsh but true to life. Our boys started listening to the trilogy (read aloud by parents) when they were 5 and this led to many difficult but necessary discussions about race relations then and now. We have now read all three books and even we're able to hear the authors speak about the impetus for this novel. We continue to reread them. The period that is described in the book is very violent and the language was awful. And I think it is important for families to read this book together.
