    What Is the Cost?

    Abby Takes a Stand (2005) by Patricia C. McKissack. These quotes will summarize the premise of this novel: "'Welcome.' We're here tonight to talk about freedom. But freedom is a meaningless word when we Negroes don't have the same rights as the white people." - "Democracy and segregation are like oil and water. The two don't mix." - "I don't believe most colored people agree with what went on here today," said the manager. He went on to say the protesters were just a few troublemakers trying to ruin it for all the good colored folks of Nashville." - "Growing up in the South is like being a bird in a cage. Our children have wings. But they're never allowed to fly. By the time they get to our age, their souls are lifeless." When readers' see these quotes it may give them insight into how some people felt during the 1960s just before the Civil Rights Movement took "flight" in the United States of America. As you read this novel it may give you a chance to step back in U. S. history and "feel" the tension, stress, and anxiety of the time. ". signs for the demonstrators who marched outside the store." à Save Our Nation End Segregation **This novel is: *well written *educational *informative *has nice charcoal illustrations and *best for readers aged nine to thirteen.
