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.
* "[A] vivid story.... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence."—Booklist, starred review
That was a great book
￼If I didn’t have this book I’d probably never have a book that would be interesting!!!
Most inspiring book I’ve read. Definitely one of my new favorites!

What is the sequel called?
I actually LOVED this book. I thought it would be kinda boring but BOY was I wrong! This book is great. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because of the amount of times the N word was used. Otherwise, great book!
