Roll Of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Puffin Modern Classics) - Mildred D. Taylor, David Kearney
a must read for young and older. it deals with issues of heritage, identity and belonging against the background of 1930s southern america when racism and social inequality was still strong and powerful. children learn valuable lessons on how to stand for what is right and not be beaten down. a very powerful message in the very well written book.
