I struggled to read this for a really long time but pulled through and I absolutely love it. ( )

I'd forgotten how intense this book is. It's amazing (in a very bad, sad way) how many of the injustices depicted in the book remain oh-so-true today. ( )

Cassie and her brothers are sent reeling by a shockingly racist trial - the culmination of events from the first book in the series, Roar of Thunder Hear My Cry. In addition, Cassie's growing up, so she learns a lot about inter-race relations and the often humiliating effects. This is a heart-rending (though sometimes slow-moving) children's historical fiction. The story deals with complex issues and is character-driven, so even though the reading level is approximately 5th-7th grade, this is not a book for reluctant readers unless they have a particular interest in race relations. It's a book for children who love to read - and to absorb ideas. It's definitely a good addition to the Roll of Thunder Series, and I find myself curious to follow the family's saga to the end.

RGG: Sequel to Roll of Thunder,… A little tedius, but no punches are pulled in describing the horrific racism of the 1930's.

Subject Area: History
Genre: Historical Fiction
This book is an excellent example of historical fiction. The author weaves a plot centered around fictional characters in a real time and place in history. The story is interesting because the historical events include civil rights, the Great Depression, and racism.
