Small Acts of Amazing Courage by by Gloria Whelan

In 1919 India, 15-year-old Rosalind, who is British, learns about Gandhi and India’s desire for independence from Britain. Several small courageous acts land Rosalind in trouble with her father. He sends her to England, where she has never been before, to live with her two aunts.  While there, Rosalind encounters injustice of another kind. Again, her courageous acts lead to life-changing consequences for her and others. This juvenile novel realistically portrays a strong, ethical protagonist engaged in the cultures of both India and Britain during a crucial stage in their history. Ages 9-12. (Simon & Schuster)
