    Enter the hilarious world of ten-year-old Kenny and his family, the Weird Watsons of Flint, Michigan. There's Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, and brother Byron, who's thirteen and an "official juvenile delinquent." When Momma and Dad decide it's time for a visit to Grandma, Dad comes home with the amazing Ultra-Glide, and the Watsons set out on a trip like no other. They're heading South to Birmingham, Alabama, toward one of the darkest moments in America's history. This book is now a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, available on DVD.

    • Historical Novel

      This historical novel is a wonderful book for Upper Elementary students to experience the events of the bombing of Ebenezar church in Birmimngham and gives a perspective of what it may have been like to live during this time from the view of Kenny and his brother. Any book that keeps the interest of children in this age group is terrific. The children that read this novel were captivated by its content and ask ed many questions.
