Reviews

A lively and engaging story that is steeped in history but cleverly weaves in universal elements of family, father-son relationships, boyhood friendships, and life's challenges."--Juanita Moore "president and CEO of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit "
It's a book about a black family in Detroit in the 1920s and '30s. But it's also the story of the triumph of hope over fear, of dreams over hard realities."--Detroit Free Press
Based on a true story, Who's Jim Hines? is a story of old racism in the 1930s in the area of Detroit. Who's Jim Hines? is a great period piece aimed at young readers with an interest in history."--Midwest Book Review
