Plot Summary: Can differences of nationalities tear a community apart? In this story, people of different races face many obstacles, either through the children or the adults. The children learn many lessons that they will have to carry with them for the rest of their lives and the adults wanted to forget all the bad things that they had to live with day to day. Through many lessons, both races come together to fight the fire that was the result of the thunder rolling into the community.
Teaching Connections: This book would be great as a History unit to teach the students how the world has changed since the time when slavery and the after effects of slavery changed the world. It could be used with how Abraham Lincoln fought to end slavery, how blacks won their freedom, and also how blacks won the right to vote and all the rights to all the things that the white race would not allowed them to do.
Reader Response: I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters make the story come to life, but one character stands out the most, Cassie is a bright child whom does not understand why her family cannot do the same things that the white people do. Cassie's family are not allowed to go to the same schools and are not treated the same at the stores. It was very disturbing to me how white people treated the black people back then. I am just so thankful that the world lives as one; whether we are white, black, brown, red, or any color.
