One Crazy Summer

I have a pretty big library.  I have a whole section on Black History Month. I've read most of the books, but I have a few new ones.  T
oday, I read most of One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia.  I loved it, loved it, loved it!  It was heartbreaking to read the story of these 3 little girls.  It is also incredibly well written.  It's not a difficult read; however, the topics are a little mature for Upper Elementary.  Amazon says it is good for ages 8-12.  I would say it is better for Middle Schoolers due to the content.  If you need a good, quick read for yourself...grab it!  It was great.

I have been considering this book-- the cover keeps grabbing my attention. Your review convinced me! I am home today due to ice and bad weather and am reading A Tangle of Knots of by Graff.

I too agree it was appropriate for my sixth graders, but I will not be using it with my third graders.
