" Read my review on my blog: http://abbylibrarian.blogspot.com/200... " said.

" I thought that this book was really informative and detailed. It gave me a new look at the history of Central High School in Little Rock. " said.

" Excellent photos and first-person recollections give readers a "you are there" feeling for the dangers and triumphs of high-school integration in Little Rock. " said.

" This book was well-researched using several primary & secondary resources (including some of the students themselves). I always appreciate this in books for children.The book read like a story and included lots of detail without being overwhelming. " said.

" This is a fantastic book with lots of photos, some cartoons, and an exceptional timeline that puts the events of Little Rock within other events of the Civil Rights Movement. There are also brief notes about what happened to each of the nine students after they grew up.#bookaday " said.

" This thin book with memorable photographs tells the horrific stories of nine teenagers who were threatened only because they wanted to attend a better school. The author interviews many of the participants and closes with an epilogue, civil rights timeline and postscripts from the participants. Highly recommended. " said.

" Walker makes good use of photographs to cover the main events of the 1957 integration of Little Rock's Central High School. This book provides a great overview of the sensational civil rights moment, and was wonderful preparation for my meeting with Carlotta Walls LaNier, one of the nine, last week. " said.

" A very readable incidental history of the Little Rock, Arkansas school integration in 1957. Three imortant dates are given chapters, on echapter is devoted to notable characters, and one to the day by day lives of the students integrating Central High. The chapters resemble well written magazine articles. A timeline and source list are given, as well as short updates revealing what became of each of the students and a couple of other key players. " said.
