It's Mississippi in the summer of 1955, and Rose Lee Carter can't wait to move north. But for now, she's living with her sharecropper grandparents on a white man's cotton plantation. Then, one town over, an African American boy, Emmett Till, is killed for allegedly whistling at a white woman. When Till's murderers are unjustly acquitted, Rose realizes that the South needs a change and that she should be part of the movement.

This is a fabulous book about the civil rights movement that will stay with you long after you're done! Rose is one of the best characters I've read, maybe, ever. While it's written for young people, I think adults will find it engaging and eye-opening as well. It felt especially timely as the civil rights discussion continues today.

This book will teach you more about the civil rights movement than any history text book. Not about the historical events but about the lives of African Americans in Mississippi. I appreciate more the courage needed to question the system, protest, register to vote... and the many reasons people were pushed to find that courage.
Rose/Rosa is a fabulous character. I loved watching her grow and develop more strength. It would be wonderful for the author to write a book featuring an adult Rosa.
