This is a real story about a girl and how she helped desegregate schools in California and the story HOW her family worked together. It was a hard fight. People were not nice.
I like this book because it shows people fighting for equal school opportunities. I don’t understand why people think people of a different skin are less than them. My friends have brown skin and are just as nice and smart as me. Heck they are calmer than me. Our skin color is just a color not a different world. I like that my friends have different backgrounds than me. Plus I have learned skin color doesn’t tell the whole story. People can be from all over the world and their skin color can look like another countries.
I recommend this book to people who faced similar situations or are curious about the fights.
I give this book 16 equality stars 👧🏿👧🏼= friends forever!
I got my copy of this book at Busboys and Poets in DC. It is a bookstore/restaurant.
