• The subject matter was fascinating and entirely new to me (I never knew what happened after the Little Rock 9), but I had a hard time with the writing level. It was indeed written for children and not one of those books where it can work on many levels. I kept getting annoyed by it and then remembering for whom it was written. – Danica
• Although this book initially felt  predictable and overdone, as I made my way through I enjoyed the layers that were built in. Fun and thoughtful read. – Marlo
• This was a fast, easy, but enjoyable read. – Carrie
• I really like the characters attitudes, it makes me feel like I’m in the book. – Olivia
• I really liked the story and the characters. Good read and makes you consider many layers of life. – Steph
• It was definitely written for pre-teens. Some of the story seemed really unbelievable. I also had to keep reminding myself that it is written for young adults in order to lower my expectations. – Sarah

Conclusion: Super fun book club led by on one our member’s 10 year old daughter.
