One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
One Crazy Summer

elizabethcheri, January 1, 2011

Rita Williams Garcia quickly gets your attention in One Crazy Summer and then proceeds to hold onto it throughout the remainder of the book. The character development of the three sisters as they are introduced to the black panther movement and re introduced to the mom who abandoned them is fascinating. The author tackles a segment of history that is rarely found in childrens lit, and she made it into a story that might very well act as a spring board for kids to learn more about it once the book is finished. Garcia found the right mix of history and fiction to make it appealing to kids as well as adults.
