Revolution 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Well written story about the Freedom Summer of 1964, which gives the reader a good understanding of racial tensions in the South, especially in Mississippi. Loved the photos that were throughout the book.

I apologize in advance for an unhelpful review, and for doing something I (unlike the two apparent children who have "reviewed" this new release before me) never have done before, which is: rate a book I've not yet read. I've left a 5-star rating in order to balance out the two 1-star labels by a couple of those bratty (IMO) role-playing warrior kitties whom the moderators at B&N continually allow to roam rampant on the review pages, unfairly savaging with a mouse click an author's hard work. This book sounds like a very worthy sequel to a highly regarded first work in a planned trilogy, which deserves to be reviewed on its own merits, not as part of some unsupervised pre-teen scavenger hunt. I've of course flagged the other reviews; please feel welcome to report me as well -- I look forward to all three of our entries being removed, as long as it brings this annoying problem to the attention of someone, anyone, at B&N who could provide pest control once & for all... (is there such a thing as a "cyber-spay & neuter" program??) To the author -- you've earned the right to expect better. I'd like to read your work, beginning with the prior novel in this series, and then return with a legitimate review.

So I haven't read the book Countdown but heard it was fabulous and since we do a unit on the Civil Rights Movement, I decided to read Revolution instead. I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately I did not.  The characters were as deep as a kiddy pool. She did not do a good job developing the characters.  having lived in Greenwood myself, the characters seemed like cardboard cut outs. Maybe I would have been more convinced by the characters if I was unfamiliar with the history and life of Mississippi. I loved the historical documents although some like the Ali and Johnson info seemed to never connect to the story.  Instead of this story connecting everything it seemed like it had too many loose strings hanging out.  There was no depth to the family issues and it seems like that took away from connecting to the characters.  although she seems to have done her research  And again the historical documents and photos were great, it felt like the author did not do that time or place in history justice.  I know it is a young adult book but what happened during freedom Summer was immense.  That impact does not come out of the pages Of this book.Like I said I really wanted to like it.  She did not write a strong enough story and the characters did not do justice to this event in history
