★ "In a visceral and vital memoir, journalist and activist Beals (Warriors Don't Cry), who integrated Central High School as one of the Little Rock Nine, recounts growing up African-American in 1940s Arkansas 'under the umbrella of the rules and traditions of my oppression.'" --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review "Beals' recollection of white oppression and her rise above it will haunt readers. A must-read for teens." --School Library Journal
