Revolution by Deborah Wiles

RevolutionRevolution by Deborah Wiles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I listened to this amazing audiobook as part of the 2015 Hub Challenge and what I enjoyed most was the interspersed Sixties speeches, news stories with Sunny's story of civil rights workers coming to her town in Mississippi and getting blacks out to vote. Seeing it from her teen viewpoint was key- she did not know about racism and segregation other than what she hears (they are invaders) but Sunny learns so much more that summer as events unfold, friendships are made and broken, and families are mended. I will want to get the book to see the pictures, but I loved this audiobook!
