Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry Book Review

Standard

I’ve just finished reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, and I just finished typing the book review. Take a look!

Cassie Logan lives in Mississippi during 1933. Her family owns some land to grow cotton, so they get by.  But that doesn’t mean they don’t struggle.  On the very day Cassie learns the truth about the world, a white girl makes fun of her just because she’s black.  That night, her mother tells her about segregation.  Cassie and her brothers try their very best to live with the fact that white people think they’re better than black people, but it’s very hard.  The only thing keeping the Logans alive is their precious land.

This book was written by Mildred D. Taylor.  I didn’t really enjoy this book, but it was very important.  My friends wouldn’t like it much either, but that’s mainly because they prefer fantasy books.

Happy reading!
