Overview

Belle Teal Harper is used to going without. She lives with her mother and grandmother far out in the country. Her fifth-grade back-to-school outfit is her fourth-grade dress. Still, Belle Teal feels rich with the love of her family and her best friends, Clarice and Little Boss. But as school begins, Belle Teal faces challenges. Gran's memory is slipping away. Mama works longer hours to support the family. Little Boss's secret troubled relationship with his father, Big Boss, is pushing him to extremes. And there are two new students in Belle Teal's class: a shy African-American boy caught in the town's furor over desegregation, and a girl whose outward confidence belies the secret she holds close.

    School's Review

    I had to read this book for school and so did my friends . They all agreed this was one of the worst books I've read. I found it offense and boring don't like it at all which is odd because I love history.

    belle teal

    It was a sweet little book. It teaches many valuable life lessons, such as acceptance, tolerance, not judging people by their skin or money, etc. A great book for preteens.

    Great Book!

    I remember reading this when I was in fifth grade. I can't remember all that much about it except that it was really good! I recommend it for 9-12 years.

    I Love This Book!

    I really liked this book, and it was really fun to read. I really like Ann M Martin's books, and this one was by far my favorite. I highly recommend it.
