    The Road To Memphis...

    The road to memphis is a great book.I read it after reading Roll Of Thunder.I felt like I was missing things so If you want to read this book I suggest you read roll Of thunder hear my cry and let the circle be unbroken.This is a great series and I feel like I am there.I felt a little sad towards the end but the characters are very caring and emotional towards their feelings.There are many main characters such as Cassie,Stacey,Clarence,Moe,Little willie and many more.Cassie is very sweet and heartwarming.Stacey is very intellegent and works hard to get what he needs.I would definitley rate this 5 out of 5 because it is a very unique story along with the others and at points in this story you will feel excited and at others you will cry. Hope you enjoyed!

    Another Great Adventure of The Logan Children

    In my opinion, this book triumphs over the other of Mildred D. Taylor's books I've read (Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry Let the Circle Be Unbroken). You can really tell how the stories start from a young girl in Mississippi, to a maturing woman in this title. This novel depicts the lives of the Logan children, focusing more on Stacey and Cassie, as they help their friend escape from prosecution. Their friend Moe attacks 3 white folks, as he is defending the one he loves Cassie. They try to make their way to Memphis, Tennessee to get Moe away from almost certain death (back then lynching was still legal in some states). They face turmoil and surprises on their way too Memphis, where Moe would escape from the south and his white oppressors.

    Very good!

    You don't need to read Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry to get the story of this book. It is a story about the 2 older Logan kids (Cassie & Stacey)growing up and dealing with racism. They are on the road with a few other friends to help their friend Moe escape to Memphis. This is very different from the 1st book since they are pretty much on their own in this one. It is very worth reading because it is not boring at all. It is fast paced and makes you not put the book down.

    A Book That Leads Your Life Down The Right Rode.

    After reading this book. It made me relize that life doesn't always go the way you want it to go. This book showed me how to deal with lifes problems in differant ways like Cassie did. Cassie had so many problems, but yet she handled them with a unique way. With friends and family helping you with life, will go a long way from now. So, I'm encouraging children to read this wonderful novel.
