My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this book to my teen children. They both enjoyed it (and did NOT like Mrs. Greene though she did ultimately redeem herself). You can read their (short) reviews below.
R (13): It was really good and I want there to be a sequel. I liked the characters. The plot is very kid-friendly but still has a racial justice theme. My favorite character was Janie. 5 out of 5 stars.
J (17): I liked that it managed to be directed at children but still painted an effective picture of racial violence. Ellis is the best character. 4 out of 5 stars.
