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.

Great kids book - Newberry and many other awards. My kids really enjoyed it - the story of a girl named Cassie and her family enduring the depression and coping up with racism.
