another great book for children to read and understand the way things work in the past. the way white and black children and to learn to deceifer the way things were versus their own feelings. very challenging but also another great benefit to the logan saga. i'd recommend this book to any child.

I thought this was one of the deepest and most original books I have read in a long time. The characters are described in such great detail that you feel as if you can relate to each and everyone of them in some way. Though some people may find this book inappropriate due to the language used or situations, the author is simply trying to make this as accurate as possible as to what life was like in the 1930's.

While reading this book with my 9 year old daughter, I came across the word nigger. I was shocked that her school would let a 4th grader read this book. I do feel American History should be taught at some point in our lives, but I didn't think it was appropriate at this age level.

well, when I read this book in my school I was suprised by the way the book ended, I mean who would have known that John Wallace shot Mr. Tom Bee and I can't believe that Mr. Tom Bee survived after being that old and get shot and still live I thought this book blew me away. So all I want to say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can see this book implemented within a classroom curriculum; History and English would be the easiest to integrate, while others would need some extra thought. The characters are real to the time period that the reader can visualize them as the dust brushes by. Even today there are friendships that are but to the test because of peer pressure and racism, which some if not all of today¿s children can relate. The book does lead itself to be thought of as ¿open ended,¿ so I would have my students become active in their reading as they would write a continuance of the happens after the book has ended. Then a good way to end this unit would be to piece all of the students¿ works into one script and perform the whole project (book + added material). This book does open the eyes of other children that might not see how some comments affect other people. Good or bad. If there are any comments or other ideas to implement this into a classroom please email me. Please place 'B&NFriendship' in subject!!!
