Judith Crossett, March 26, 2010 (view all comments by Judith Crossett)
This book doesn't need my praise, but it's an important book. This is one of the books I give young people so they understand the power of the Constituion and the power of a citizen in this democracy (the other, Howard Zinn, People's History). These two, and my grandmother's story: when she was 15, her mother came home one day to say, "This is an important day, because now we can vote. Voting is important; never miss a chance to use your right to vote".
