Read it in school

In school, we all had to read this book. It's not my favorite, but it can teach you something. We all had to make short "movies" of a sceen or two in the book. It was fun. I would recomend this book to kids ages 11+

Beautiful, moving, and poignant

This is a beautiful novel. The language is almost poetic and it fully engrosses you in the story. It teaches a valuable lesson and has a very strong (and headstrong) female character as the protagonist. A wonderful book for kids 9+.

A really Great Book

This book deals with the issue of racism. It is a wonderful book because it shows how evil prejudice can be, but it also shows how that when whites and african americans work together..they can solve these issues.
