    Great Historical Fiction Book

    I would rank this book as one of my favorite books that I have read recently for young adult literature. This is a perfect book to fit into the historical fiction category. It tackles and addresses issues that are crucial in understanding history. The character elements were displayed in an easy to understand manner. The book was written from an eleven-year-olds standpoint. It took place in Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960¿s. There were no illustrations present in the book. The cover gives an idea as to what the book would be about. There are two girls, one is Caucasian and one is African American. It was interesting to see how far we have come from then up until now. The strengths of book are unbelievable. This book is appropriate for young adults to read, but they have to understand that it is written using the word ¿nigger,¿ which can be highly offensive. The text is written is such a way that one can feel what the main character is feeling. I felt hurt with how the other characters were treating her and also was wondering ¿why¿ throughout the book. This book would be great to be read while the students are learning about racism and also the Civil Rights Movement. I remember reading in school about it, but this book touched upon elements that occurred in history but also made it ¿real¿ with this storyline.
