    Crow MOBI Ç ì Epub ar1web.co crow book, Crow PDF/EPUBLast spring I accidentally tripped over a Goodreads Newbery 2013 prediction list This small gem of a list has had me blazing through many great novels the past few months Actually I was blazing a few months ago Now I'm snatching time here and there Anyhoo check out Crowa worthy recommendation It is my latest all in good fun guess for the Newbery winnerI have found it fascinating to read how professional reviewers look at Newbery predictions and discuss the details of what might make or break a Newbery winner as it competes in a pile of high uality contenders For instance one reviewer said that The One and Only Ivan had language that was too flowery or contradicted the fact that the gorilla claimed to be simple and plain Another claimed that Wonder had a point of view that didn't forward the plot A third stated that Three Times Lucky had plot points that were too unbelievable and clues that didn't always add up Crow was critiued by

    Crow MOBI Ç ì Epub ar1web.co crow book, Crow PDF/EPUBEver heard of the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898? I hadn't until I read this book In 1898 white supremacistsDemocrats went on the rampage overthrowing the elected government which included several Black citizens of the city of Wilmington North Carolina in a coup d'etat They mobbed and set fires and killed dozens of Black leaders and citizens and ran thousands out of town marking the beginning of severe racial segregation disenfranchisement and Jim Crow I def didn't realize this was written by a white woman when I picked it up and I have mixed feelings about that and there were some slightly annoying messages of just follow the law and everything will be ok when clearly that isn't the case as the events of the book demonstrate Oh also wouldn't a 12 year old in 1898 know what lynching was? And prob about how light skinned babies were born to slaves? I dunno but I also like seeing MG and YA books that focus on politicalracial history in time periods other than

    Crow MOBI Ç ì Epub ar1web.co crow book, Crow PDF/EPUBI've never read historical fiction about this time period in the South and really enjoyed learning about the post emancipation cultural transitions I particularly liked the generational differences in this family where the grandmother was a slave the mother was born into slavery but freed as a baby and the 10 year old protagonist was born free Recommended Listened to the audiobook

    Crow MOBI Ç ì Epub ar1web.co crow book, Crow PDF/EPUBI've been naive I've taught you to live in a world I wanted to exist not one that actually doesNothing makes me happier than to blindly stumble into a great story With the right recommendation even the flap is a spoiler Boo Nanny is the first reason to fall in love with this book As Moses tells it she takes in wash from the white people in town which clues us in to the time period Jack Thomas dad of Moses works for a newspaper the first black daily Over the next 120 pages we coast through Moses's 5th grade summer getting a feel for life in post Civil War Wilmington North Carolina The black community is thriving Firefighters police lawyers; Jack serves in local government in addition to reporting the news Race certainly isn't ignored but given the time and location the lack of animosit

    Crow MOBI Ç ì Epub ar1web.co crow book, Crow PDF/EPUBHighly flawed the author wanted to provide the reader with a historical fiction account of the events leading up to and during the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898 Her choice to present the account in the first person perspective of a 12 year old boy forced her to explain him into situations The way he 'just happened to be there' became extremely tedious and unbelievable as the story wore on Eye roll inducing The voice
