Cover Rating: A

This book is a beautiful story about survival of the human spirit. It tells the story of a young colored girl in the south not long after the abolishment of slavery, when racial tensions are still high – and dangerous. The way the story is told is both eloquent and easy for younger audiences to read. You will cry, you will laugh, you will feel as though you’ve actually stepped into the shoes of Cassie Logan as she lives out her life and struggles her struggles. I highly suggest that everyone, child and adult alike, read this story to get an accurate representation of this time in American history as told through the eyes of a child.

The cover is both eye-catching and gives an accurate representation of what readers should expect from the story.
