's review

it was amazing

I love Kathryn Erskine and her Author's Note in this book says it all:
"I wrote this book so that readers might see that, no matter what your age, you can make a difference. If you think something is wrong, change it. If you think people are being wronged, change that. You have the power to change things about your world. That doesn't mean you'll always win--often, you won't--but even making an attempt to "fix it right" does have an effect. Above all, you have the power to be whatever kind of person you want to be. No one can take that incredible power away from you. I also wrote this story so readers would know that it wasn't very long ago that people routinely judged one another by the color of their skin or their ethnicity. While we have come a long way there is still a long road ahead of us. To the travelers on this road: Be brave; be strong; be leaders."
End Quote

We routinely have to choose between what is right and what is easy, hopefully the powerful story and message of this book will help our children to choose "what is right".
