Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
Cassie can't understand why she should have to get off the pavement and walk in the road when Miss Lillian comes along, nor why she should be served last at the grocery store when she had been the first in the queue. But Cassie is learning that life is unfair if you are black and living in Mississippi.
Cassie believes she can do something about all the injustice but, in fighting for her principles, she puts her whole family in danger...
This is a powerful story of one family's passionate determination not to be beaten.
