The Lions Of Little Rock

The Lions of Little Rock

Author: Kristen Levine

Genre: Historical fiction

set in about 1958…

A new girl named Liz shows up at a “whites only” school. She looked as if she sat in the sun for the whole summer. Marlee, a twelve year old girl, and Liz become friends. But one day Sally, the mean and prissy girl of the school, spots Liz and her younger brother in the “black” part of town. Will their friendship last the struggles of segregation, or will it go down in flames?

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • My absolute favorite Quote is the one on the cover because it really shows what these girls are trying to prove (“friendship is more than skin deep”)
  • This book was very entertaining and, even though it is fiction, it informs you about what it was mostly like during that time period.

MY RECOMMENDATION:

I would definitely  recommend this book. This book is calked full of lip-biting-suspense, and lots of daring risks. This book kept me at the edge of my chair, the whole way trough. I give this book 4 stars for sure.
