Staff Reviews


I’ve often passed over the plethora of novels set in the 1960s because
they did not feel right—they had the facts, but they lacked the truth.
In Wiles’ Revolution, photos, newspaper clippings, and song
lyrics join a fictional narrative in as perfect a work of historical
fiction as I’ve ever encountered in children’s literature. Grades 6–12

Description


It's 1964, and Sunny's town is being invaded.  Or at least that's what the adults of Greenwood, Mississippi are saying. All Sunny knows is that people from up north are coming to help people register to vote.  They're calling it Freedom Summer.

Meanwhile, Sunny can't help but feel like her house is being invaded, too.  She has a new stepmother, a new brother, and a new sister crowding her life, giving her little room to breathe.  And things get even trickier when Sunny and her brother are caught sneaking into the local swimming pool -- where they bump into a mystery boy whose life is going to become tangled up in theirs.

As she did in her groundbreaking documentary novel COUNTDOWN award-winning author Deborah Wiles uses stories and images to tell the riveting story of a certain time and place -- and of kids who, in a world where everyone is choosing sides, must figure out how to stand up for themselves and fight for what's right.

She also sang in the Glee Club, was a champion speller, and hated Field Day. Deborah lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
