    Winner of the Newbery Medal, this remarkably moving novel has impressed the hearts and minds of millions of readers.

    Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, this is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And it is also Cassie's story?Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

    * "[A] vivid story.... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence."?Booklist, starred review

      I bought this book for a Children's Literature class I took in college. It was not my favorite book, but it is not horrible. Many people loved it actually. It does have some amazingly vivid scenes, and definitely a story I would read along with fourth and fifth grade boys. A classic definitely, but not a favorite for my personal taste.
