Age: YA

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Diversity: Race/ethnicity, income, gender

Illustrations: None

Personal Response: While I enjoyed this story and categorized it as realistic fiction, I'm not sure that the main character is very realistic. The situations she finds herself in and the prevailing attitudes of the post-Civil War south towards both African Americans and Northeners do seem very believable.

Curriculum: This would be a great book to use as supplemental or required reading in a class unit about the Civil War, its aftermath and race relations in the United States.
