Review: One Crazy Summer

One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well written tale of a girl's journey to discover who her mother is. Set in Oakland during the summer of 1968, the culture and national mood have an unsettling way of forcing children to grow up and adults to face their responsibilities. This book also reminds us that growing up often begins with the loss of idyllic childhood. Sadly there are children all across the globe who still struggle with these same issues.
