RE: [middle_school_lit] Summer reading
One book that stands out to me is The Rock and the River by Kekla Magoon. Released in 2009, it is from the perspective of a 14-year old African American boy living in 1968 Chicago . He finds himself caught between his father’s non-violent civil rights approach and his Black Panther brother. Fascinating!

What are you reading? Do you have middle school favorites from 2010? This is shaping up to be an amazing year.
