      Francie is a wonderful eighth grade heroine who is stuck in Noble, Alabama between the wars with her mom and brother after her dad promised he'd bring them to Chicago to live after he saved enough as a Pullman Porter. Francie holds onto this promise and her future while struggling to live in an unfair and segregated world. Francie's a smart, spunky character who is bewildered by her own impulsiveness and hasn't realized that she has a well-developed sense of right and wrong. The story does a gre [...]

      Francie, an African American girl is courageous enough to help another African American escape and hide-from the higher authority that are trying to capture him. Francie had hopes that her father would take here somewhere, Chicago, but it seems he can't fulfill his promise. But, the boy that Francie helped safely escaped due to her courage. Francie is a very admirable character because she unselfishly helps someone in need-even if she will be blame for it later on and suffer major consequences. [...]

      This is an interesting book that takes the reader on a journey of understanding racial discrimination after slavery is abolished. The story is focused on one girl and her relationship with a mysterious boy that is accused of a crime. She learns how to stand up for herself and adapt to the cultural discriminations placed on her. I would like to read this as a read aloud in my classroom.

      This book has prompted many great discussions in my class. It is great to read during Black History Month. Students are very surprised to read how Francie is treated at Diller Drug Store, and are so glad people aren't treated that way anymore.or are they?
