it was ok
bookshelves: adolescent-lit

An interesting take on an historical event -- seeing it through the eyes of those on the periphery, not the actual participants but the spectators.

Bryant does a good job of framing the story of educational liberty with other burgeoning social issues such as women's rights and civil rights.

It's also original to tell the narrative in free-form poetry.
