it was amazing

Middle grade historical fiction based on the childhood of Betty Dean Sanders aka Betty Shabazz or Betty X. There is great background information and notes at the back of the book. But the appeal is its universal themes that middle-schoolers will be able to relate to: mother-daughter relationships, the definition of a family, rejection from family and peers, navigating friendships, self-confidence, image.
