This is my absolute favorite book from childhood. I read it in third grade, and again and again after that and I have never forgotten it.

Powerful messages about rising above the injustices in life and the importance of family.

The second book in the series, "Let the Circle Be Unbroken", is excellent as well.

I read this book as an adolescent and never forgot it. A coming of age novel that deals very effectively with the complex issue of racism and prejudice.
