I would have never come across this book if a staff member at the library hadn't suggested it and I'm so glad I read it. It is a novel about the desegregation of American schools in 1959-60 and it was so interesting. There were a few little dry spots here and there but it is well worth reading through them. I would recommend this to anyone.

This book was absolutely outstanding Dennis McFarland is a wonderful writer whom I haven't run across before.

The author has captured a 10 year old's perceptions and understanding beautifully while at the same time highlighting the truth about adult lies and obfuscation. Set in 1959 Virginia it also offers a view of segregation that I hadn't previously encountered.

I really look forward to reading all of Dennis McFarland's books.
