Summary:
This book is about the South African Government. The South African is trying to make a woman named Naledi and other villagers move. Though Naledi and her friend Talol stand up for the villagers and the village they believe in.

Personal Reaction:
I loved this book! It shows people that they should stand up and what they believe in.

Classroom Extensions:

1. The students can have a little rally for something that they believe in and have a group of students try to protest against it.

2. Children can write in their journal about something that they truly believe in and use examples of why they believe in what they do.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064404684, Paperback)

The South African government is forcing Naledi an the other villagers to move to a new location: a "homeland" of iron huts and barren soil. And it seems that no one is willing to resist.

No one, that is, except Naledi's friend Taolo, whose family has often spoken out against apartheid. Taolo gives Naledi the strength to fight, and with his help, she and her schoolmates organize an anti-removal march through the village. But the right of free expression is not a liberty granted to the young protesters, and the police instigate a reign of terror on the villagers. Naledi and Taolo's chain of fiery resistance cannot be broken, though. With each new crisis, it grows ever stronger and burns ever brighter.
