Revolution by Deborah Wiles

RevolutionRevolution by Deborah Wiles
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'm on a literary downhill slide lately. While I love #weneeddiversebooks and the Civil Rights time period, I found this too disjointed to me and I never felt close to the characters. Yes, the design of the book is cool--all the photographs, quotes, songs, and primary documents make this the perfect read for a junior high social studies class. But not for me, a librarian and former history teacher. Give me The Rock and the River instead. I kept feeling like the book was selling "to inform" too hard.
