To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have this book 5 stars because it truly was an awesome book to read! I loved how Nic Stone threw in all types of history knowledge throughout this book! The reader was learning about history in an entertaining way! I loved the relationships also in this book, between grandparents/grandchildren, son/father, and best friend/friends. The plot was very good, and I honestly learned a lot, all from that little green book!
I read this book because I gave it to my godson as a birthday gift. I wanted to know what it was about to talk about after he read it. The book is excellent even for an adult. Interspersing important events in the civil rights era in a story with a good plot was extremely well done. Birmingham church bombing, Medgar Evers, Ruby Bridges, and the discussions on racism were phenomenal. I recommend this book to kids who don't know much about the Civil Rights era. Very well done!
I love the history and the way the story leads up to, bit by bit, what the Grandma is up to. I like how the son, William aka Scoob, has to endure a trip that will be one he never forgets. I like how the dad has to face how he's treated his son, hopefully giving them the chance to be better. This was a fun story. Highly recommend
