Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry Mildred D. Taylor Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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

  • Boring

    By Misspelled names.
    This book was super boring. I could barely pay attention. It’s like,” Mr.Berry died.” There is no emotion, or no reaction.
  • Amazing

    I love how you can have all different emotions in 1 book. It can be a little hard in the beginning to understand what's going on and who the characters are but overall it's a great book

    This book was really good. I especially liked the part at the beginning (spoilers alert) when they dug the trench in the road for the bus to go through and get stuck. I've only ever actually read the first chapters and it was really good. I was reading the book for school so I never had the time to finish it. Definitely read this book. Also if you are looking for a book for black history month and are looking for a book look no further than this books pages. Loves this book I have it a whole five stars so that must mean it's worth it. 😜
