This book is about an African American family called the Logan family. This book takes place during the 1940’s when our nation struggled with racism. The Logan family works hard to keep their land, but there are many obstacles to avoid. A white family named the Wallace family are trying to cause trouble for the Logan family. Papa, the father of the Logan family, is always gone, but had finally come home and he brought someone with him. A big, strong man who goes by the name of L.T. L.T. is put in charge to guard the house and family from any danger. On the other hand, Cassie, the daughter, is being bullied and beat up by the white students that ride a school bus every day. T.J. is a boy who was a friend to the Logan family, but then he ended up being a trouble maker. T.J. will later learn his lesson. I would recommend this book to any body who likes books that mentally “pull you in” as you get into it. This book was full of excitement and surprise.
