It’s 1963 and the Watsons, an African-American family, journey from Flint, Michigan to Birmingham, Alabama to take their troublesome son, Byron, to live with his grandmother, a trip that lands them in one of the darkest moments in America’s racial history. A fictionalization of the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, Christopher Paul Curtis’ novel won the Newbery Honor and the Coretta Scott King Awards.

Recommended for 5th Grade and older.
