Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood

| , |

The summer of 1964 is a time of change in Hanging Moss, Miss. Eleven-year-old Glory is looking forward to her favorite summer events: spending time at the pool, visiting the library, playing cards with her older sister, and hanging out with her classmate, Frankie. Glory’s summer changes dramatically as she deals with a sister growing up, new friends from the North, and questions about how and when to take a stand against segregation. Young readers will develop a clearer understanding of racism and how to stand up for what is right. The short chapters and easy reading style make this an excellent selection for children ages 10 and up. (Scholastic)
