Booker T Washington high school in Tulsa has made this book required summer reading for incoming freshmen. When I purchased the book for my grandson I read the first few pages. I was hooked. I read the entire book over the weekend while his family was out of town. Since I grew up in Tulsa it is fun when the author refers to local places. The story is amazing, the characters were so real. I am proud to share that my grandfather was one of the business owners who sheltered Greenwood residents. This book helped me to understand what he experienced. It is a must read!
