it was ok
bookshelves: 6-8grade, historicalfiction
Read in November, 2007

Maybe I was too sleepy or tired when I attempted reading this story but I really couldn't keep my mind on it. I can see that the author has a great voice and that I really really like Addy O'Donnell, the main character, and the story has so many hard-hitting issues, dealing with the Klan and prejudices of many kinds. And yet... it seems fragmented and full of adult sensibilities, delivered as sermons, preaching to the readers. Am I too harsh?

Betsy No idea. Susan Pine's a fan, so I figured I'd give it a looksee when I got a chance. With all that I have to read before the end of 2007 I don't know if this one's worth it, though. Glad I saw you read it first.
