really liked it

Having read books ABOUT the Little Rock Nine as well as taking my own children to tour Central High School and related sites, it was insightful to read a first-person account of one of those children: to walk in her shoes. It's written simplistically enough for young readers (and includes study questions at the end for classroom use). Besides sharing those challenging high school years, she intertwines stories before, during and after that help put a context on her story that i hadn't though of before. She tells of her family as well as her travels.
