The sixties trilogy
review 1: Deborah Wiles has written another fantastic Y.A. book. I think this one is even better than Countdown, the first in her trilogy! The events in Greenwood, Mississippi during the summer of 1964 are told through the eyes of Sunny, a 12-year-old middle class girl. Greenwood was the site of major protests and conflict as African Americans tried to achieve equality by gaining the right to vote. As Wiles did in Countdown, Revolution tells a story based on real events. It contains many quotes and photos from primary sources. This moving novel makes history come alive for the reader.

... morei and covers the attempt by mostly college students from the North to register the Black population in order to vote. The pictures associated with this book are a plus. A must read for anyone interested in The Civil Rights movement. less
