    Historical fiction that starts out light; I actually grinned a couple of times But there are some very serious bits too Focus mainly on racism but also on sexism Both girls are delightful and everyone else is interesting too Thank goodness for the epilogue to bring back hope All but the most sensitive readers should be able to hand

Irst Frannie ignores Celeste then the two girls are chosen to be in a special vocal ensemble and they find themselves becoming friends But others are. Thirteen year old Francie is worrying about entering 8th grade and how to act and what to think about boys than the Berlin Wall or whatever else her parents see on the news It s the all important last year of Junior High and Francie and her friends want to make an impression Then Celeste Chisolm comes to Francie s hometown of Chisolm Oklahoma and changes everything Celeste is colored and as the daughter of a wealthy man she lives within the town limits and attends the same school as Francie and her friends Francie is drawn to Celeste but not brave enough to befriend the girl Soon Francie is wondering at the fairness of restriction and has to decide whether she can stop caring what people think long enough to make a new friend This book starts off a little slow The girls are typical teens and are all consumed with image and being popular I didn t like Francie at first but once she starts paying attention to current events she becomes likable and the story gets interesting I found Francie s parallel between the Berlin Wall Communist and American segregation patriotic or is it also akin to Communism The topic was very very timely The story of Celeste s great grandfather made me sick to my stomach and terrified in light of recent events I ve read about similar stories but not so much insider information I found all those exact details about what great grandma Belle wrote in letters a little too coincidental I haven t read any records from that time period so I don t really know if it s something someone would write about in that much detail The story also deals with sexism and I couldn t even deal with the disrespect of a boss who WINKS at his secretary and refers to her as a little lady I am baffled by why anyone would want to return this this time periodThe characters is this book are a little flat The girls are not all that appealing at first especially Francie s friends Francie is a typical teen girl worried about what others think Her friends are shallow and one of them is downright rude Her good Christian lady act annoyed the heck out of me Margot s fake French drove me up a wall The only one I liked was straight talking cowgirl Kelly Until Celeste showed up Then the characters especially Francie had to figure out what they thought and what they were going to do about Celeste I found Francie s early naivete surprising but her growth is excellent I especially like how she deals with others treatment of Celeste and how she learns to think about how events in far off countries affect her I really liked Celeste She s the only appealing teenager from the get go She s intelligent enough to understand what s going to happen to her but still has some lessons to learn The story of friendship is very nice and heartwarmingBecause of some graphic violence relayed through a story I would not recommend this for young readers

It's the early 1960s and Frannie has never given much thought to the color of her skin until an African American girl named Celeste moves to town At f. This book was REALLY GOOD it is about when an african american girl called Celeste moves into a town with a history of racism She befriends the main charachter Frannie and they go on many adventures it has some creepy points but over all that just makes it interesting Frannie has 3 other friends who each have their own fun personalities as well and it is so easy to connect to and like all the charachters in this book
