Last spring I accidentally tripped over a Goodreads Newbery 2013 prediction list This small gem of a list has had me blazing through many great novels the past few months Actually I was blazing a few months ago Now I m snatching time here and there Anyhoo check out Crowa worthy recommendation It is my latest all in good fun guess for the Newbery winnerI have found it fascinating to read how professional reviewers look at Newbery predictions and discuss the details of what might make or break a Newbery winner as it competes in a pile of high uality contenders For instance one reviewer said that The One and Only Ivan had language that was too flowery or contradicted the fact that the gorilla claimed to be simple and plain Another claimed that Wonder had a point of view that didn t forward the plot A third stated that Three Times Lucky had plot points that were too unbelievable and clues that didn t always add up Crow was critiued by a reviewer who felt the plot was forced with Moses presence at every historical event Some of these details discussed by reviewers I noticed on my own Most I didn t I m not so great with the details I tend to go for the overall story Did I like it Did it move me Is the author a stylesmith Did the plot move forward Did the characters change Were their voices strong Was the story uniue My answer to those uestions with Crow is yes yes and yes I m no good at guessing Newbery winners but I have found the discussions from professional reviewers uite fascinating and it has opened my eyes a crack as to what the process entails in choosing the best fiction book for the yearSixth grader Moses lives in Wilmington North Carolina in 1989 where a black middle class has emerged and holds government and city positions of power Moses father is the brilliant editor of a black newspaper and a city leader Moses friend Lewis comes from a wealthy black banking family but Lewis thinks he s important than Moses because of his dad s position and he is bossy to Moses as they play together in the neighborhood But Moses doesn t care he has fun with him and puts up with his attitude When Johnny an uppity black boy whose dad runs the port decides to be friends with Lewis he purposefully excludes Moses and is outwardly prejudice toward him because he is not as wealthy as Johnny or Lewis s family As Moses deals with the every day issues of friendship there are hints that all is not well in the city That racial tension is high and hatred simmers under the surface of daily livingMose s Grandma Boo Nanny foreshadows bad things to come when buzzards appear in the sky Moses peaceful life is turned upside down as hatred builds in the city to the point where the government is illegally disposed of by a white supremacist group that seizes power People are murdered in the street businesses burned and the black middle class leaders driven out of town during this grim period of history The strong characters and inspiring prose kept me flipping through the pages and while the topic is dark it is filled with hope and love as evidenced by Mose s family The contrasting strong personalities of Boo Nanny and Mose s father add wisdom and depth to the story and while Moses is a good kid he doesn t always make the right choices He s very real and I chuckled when he got back at Johnny then felt ashamed for his behavior afterwardsThe theme of prejudice is not only between races but between humans regardless of color People are prejudice because of differences such as status education or physical disabilities The author captures the dichotomy of Boo Nanny being illiterate but a survivor with street smarts than her highly educated son in law Mose s dad who fights to create a better future for blacks but doesn t always seem to grasp the extent of people s hatred toward his race He even tells Moses that hatred can t be fought with reason and he s at a loss as to how to deal with it in the community But he does deal with it He insists on fair treatment of colored people in small ways whether that be refusing to step down as Alderman or using a front door instead of a servants door Boo Nanny on the other hand is illiterate and blind however when Moses reads an article and marvels that while he understands the words he doesn t get the meaning whereas Boo Nanny seemed to grasp it immediately though she didn t know half the words Boo Nanny grew up as a slave and she s seen so much hatred she refuses to talk about her past When Moses is distressed at their uarreling his mother says So when your daddy and Boo Nanny uarrel I want you to think I m the luckiest boy alive Cause I got myself two ways of looking at a thing not just oneWords are shown to have power and Moses father teaches his son new words from the big dictionary in their house as well as shows the value of words that make laws for governing and providing freedom of speech Words can also hurt and keep people in their place from the mean comments the boys fling at each other to the derogatory comments from white people in the community calling blacks Sambo forcing them to use a different coach on the train telling them to leave their white neighborhood and Moses dad uses small steps to change people s attitude and not back down when others are not being fair or doing the right thing He chooses his battles and tries to fight injustice with words Moses changes throughout the story as he learns to emulate his fatherThere is one section regarding the father of Mose s mother I am not sure kids will understand it because it involves Boo Nanny and her previous slave owner It isn t explained but an adult can infer what happened the detail moves the plot forward by showing Boo Nanny s horrible suffering as a slave Yet there is an unfinished feel by having no explanation I m torn I really don t want the details but it seems like something should be said I would love to be a fly on the wall at a Newbery committee meeting If you liked Lions of Little Rock then you ll love this book too My only complaint is the cover I think it s ugly On the positive side many Newbery winners have ugly book covers I have to really talk up The Witch of Blackbird Pond and Bud Not Buddy to get students to read it Don t let the cover turn you off Grab this winnerReading Level 46 Under Currents the discovery of a family secret Yet The Confidential Agent there are good The Light in the Window times This Gun for Hire The Confidential Agent and The Ministry of Fear too He's Lissa teaching his grandmother how.

characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Barbara Wright Crow AUTHOR Barbara Wright Read & Download ó 4 Barbara Wright ´ 4 Free read Lent plot against the government to maintain the status uoOne generation away from slavery a thriving African American community enfranchised and emancipated suddenly and violently loses its freedom in turn of the century North Carolina when a group of local politicians stages the only successful coup d'etat in US histor. Highly flawed the author wanted to provide the reader with a historical fiction account of the events leading up to and during the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898 Her choice to present the account in the first person perspective of a 12 year old boy forced her to explain him into situations The way he just happened to be there became extremely tedious and unbelievable as the story wore on Eye roll inducing The voice of the main character was terribly inauthentic throughout a 12 year old publicly educated black boy in 1898 North Carolina would never say the dress had a single skirt with a continuous line of ruffles around the bottom ending halfway down the calf shorter than what was considered modest for any but the youngest girls or it held the monstrous hydraulic machine that smashed the loose bales of cotton from the gin into denser blocks to be loaded onto foreign bound vessels For the amount of description needed to describe the setting a first person narrative just does not workUntil the race riot situation comes to a head the book feels like unconnected collection of stories some characters and conflicts are introduced and then never mentioned again or details already described are repeated in another section Redeeming ualities some of the scenes and dialogue do a fine job of portraying the scary antics of the white supremacist red shirts in 1898 something that children may have a hard time imagining today The relationship between Moses and his father was well done with some great dialogue about being a stand up man
