Claudette Colvin: Twice Towards Justice

Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice - Phillip M. Hoose

I was disappointed when I missed week 9 of AudioBook SYNC this summer.  But my local library had a copy of Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice, which was one of the two selections.  Now, I'm glad that I missed the download and read the hard copy since the photographs were such an integral and captivating part of the book.  While I liked how the first person source material and quotes were threaded through the book, I found parts of the narration a bit dry.  Phillip Hoose's extensive research is evident throughout, but I felt like he couldn't quite figure out whether he was writing a monograph for adults (and use in college classes) or a first person tale accessible to teens.
