Reviews

Starred Review, Booklist, February 1, 2010:
"The daughter of civil rights leader Andrew Young remembers her family's active role in the civil rights movement, beginning when she was four years old...Many adults will want to talk about their memories of the time, and kids will appreciate the child's intimate viewpoint of world-changing history."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, December 2009:
"History comes alive in this vivid account."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, November 15, 2009:
"Civil rights can be a difficult topic, even for adults, so finding simple language to explain the complexity of injustice and oppression to children is challenging. Shelton, daughter of Andrew Young, accepts the challenge and rises to meet it...Essential."

Review, Publishers Weekly, November 23, 2009:
"Both contributors evoke the drama and emotion of the times...and a triumphal sense of community and family."
