This is the first time I've come across a historical fiction about the Black Panthers, and I loved it! Appropriately thoughtful in its subject matter, and the precocious narrator charmed me to no end. A tiny, underappreciated work of art. ( )

Great story, especially if you are one of three sisters and enjoy historical fiction! ( )

I love a little history lesson in a tween novel. This book is a piece of Oakland history, with a view of the Black Panthers from the perspective of an 11 year old using their summer camp and free meal program. It was also a story of a child trying to understand why the adults in her life make the choices they have, why her mother walked out on her and her sisters, why the culture of Oakland is so different from her Brooklyn home.

I really liked the writing and the feel of this book. It's rare for children's fiction to talk about the Black Panthers, and Williams-Garcia does a great job presenting them from a child's perspective, focusing primarily on the community activism and welfare provided by the Panthers as well as the unfair persecution they faced. Many of the characters (especially the youngest sister, Fern) really lived on the page. And I appreciated the complicated look at what it was to be a young black girl in 1968--feeling girl power, black power, but ever-conscious of making a "grand Negro spectacle" in front of whites.

Still, it didn't wow me. There wasn't much in the plot to keep the reader engaged. Three young sisters (11-year-old Delphine, 9-year-old Vonetta, and 7-year-old Fern)from Brooklyn fly to Oakland to spend a month with their mother, a woman they hardly know. The mother is cold to them and sends them out every day to the Black Panther summer camp for kids. Over the course of their month in California, the girls learn a little about the Black Panthers and kinda sorta get to know their mother. At the very end there's some great stuff, but it lags in the middle. Overall, a sophisticated mix of serious and sweet, but ultimately anticlimactic. It needed to be either shorter or longer to be a Great Book.

One last thing: I know I can't be the only reader to wonder what's up with the father and grandmother sending the girls (all under age 12!) to live with a woman who doesn't want them and then NEVER calling to check in on them. True, the mother didn't have a phone. And true, those were different times. But still. ( )

This book is set in the 1960's during the Civil Rights Movement, and it tells the story of three sisters who meet their estranged mother and experience a summer filled with adventures. ( )

Good thing the plane had seat belts and we'd been strapped in tight before takeoff. Without them, that last jolt would have been enough to throw Vonetta into orbit and Fern across the aisle.

"It's just the clouds bumping...We push our way into the clouds; the clouds get mad and push back. Like you and Fern fighting over red and gold crayons."...I kept on spinning straw, making everything all right. That's mainly what I do. Keep Vonetta and Fern in line. The last thing Pa and Big Ma wanted to hear was how we made a grand Negro spectacle of ourselves thirty thousand feet up in the air around all these white people.
