Do you need a good book to read over the summer? I think the book Roll of Thunder Hear me Cry is a good book because there is a lot of horrifying action in the book. There was always bad action between the black and the white people. They were always fighting over land and money. This book has also won an awesome Newberry award so that proves that the book is really good. I believe this book is also sad because the blacks and the whites would kill and burn each other fiercely. For example in the book the two Wallace boys that were white burned two black local men. They killed one of them. I think they should treat each other equally. There are over 2,310,000 copies sold of the book Roll of Thunder hear me Cry. You should really read the book Roll of Thunder Hear me Cry.
Good Points
* There is a lot of action in the book
* There is a lot of interesting problems the characters get into and have to solve
* I like how the setting took place in the south in Mississippi during the 1930's
