(Paperback, 288 pages, first published in 1977)

Winner of the Newbery Medal, this remarkably moving novel has impressed the hearts and minds of millions of readers.

Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, this is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And it is also Cassie's story—Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

Cautions: This book takes the Lord's name in vain a number of times (contains no other profanity). Parents should also note the deeply sensitive topics addressed—a good book to read in parallel with your child and discuss.

Recommended Age: 12+
