Great story that deals with the racial problems of Birmingham and growing up in Flint Michigan

This book was easy to read, but not terribly exciting. The main character is a 4th grade boy. It teaches friendship and kindness, making mistakes, and dealing with grief and feelings of inadequacy.

A well- written book for students grades 4-6. The book deals with difficult topics with characters students can relate to. This book is an excellent selection to read aloud and discuss as a class.

Enjoyed this one quite a bit. It was funny and the characters were interesting. Learned a bit about the depression, Pullman porters, labor unions, Hoovervilles, the negro league, jazz and more
