Publisher's Summary

Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year, the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she is black, to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride, for no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.


What the Critics Say

"Vivid - complex - powerful - convincing - The novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence." (Booklist)

"Recorded Books' commitment to producing outstanding classics for young people has never been more obvious than in this recording of one of the best books ever to win the Newbery Award.... Lynne Thigpen, one of the welcome new African-American narrators, is so convincing that it could be Cassie herself telling what happened." ( AudioFile)

I liked how the book is so descriptive and very realistic. Also the audiobook creates a great atmosphere and makes you more tense, happy, sad and scared of events in the book.
I would recommend this to 12 year old readers who are good at underetanding complex meanings and storylines.
I rated this 5 stars because there is ABSOLUTELY nothing bad about it. Even though the n word is used, kt has to be, because thats what people were called in those days
