it was amazing
Read 2 times. Last read January 14, 2019 to February 7, 2019.

Just finished reading this again with a 7th & 8th grade book club. Excellent material for discussions about racism and unfair assumptions, and the kids really enjoyed the unique format.

I really enjoyed this story of what happens to a small town when two inmates from a local prison escape. Fear can help a community come together, but it can also bring out the worst in people. Told through multiple narrators' artifacts for a time capsule, this book sheds lights on important issues like systemic racism and generational prejudices. (Plus I loved all the Hamilton references!) Ages 10 and up.
