Ludell by Brenda Wilkinson is a historical fiction story that takes you back to follow the life of Ludell an African American girl living in a segregated area in Georgia Her 1950 s era life may not be overrun by plenty of money toys and clothes but her spunky personality and her grandmother s drive to bring her up well allows her to push through her many struggles financially or just growing up with a smile Ludell begins to discover many different ways of taking risks as a result of her adolescent freedoms and her daring endeavors such as wandering to an old haunted house to play sneakily buying food using her best friend Ruthie Mae s mother s credit and even hiding her first boyfriend from her grandmother leaves the reader feeling a bit nervous too As is common with children growing up taking risks also involves bending the rules and dealing with the frustration of your parents rules and Ludell is no exception This makes her story very relatable as she finds reasons to complain about her grandmother s instructions and as you will find as you read this bookOne example of this is found on page 68 when Ludell s grandmother Mama says Girl if you don shut yo mouf trying to back talk me you gon find yo self gitting up of the ground Mama make me so sick sometime Ludell s frustration is evident here as it is many times during the book which makes it all the relatable and humorous for teens to read This book isn t only relatable and funny but Wilkinson s warm writing style draws you in with interesting and show stopping characters embodying each individual character with dialogue and dramatically telling stories These tactics turn what could be for some a drab story line into one that is full of life Not only this but this story draws some of the attention away from the hardships that African Americans faced during segregation and the Civil Right s Movement and focuses a lot on the rich culture and joy that Ludell experiences even though Mama struggles financially and segregation is still very prevalent This aspect really opened my eyes towards the joy that could be found through the struggle of many black teens growing up in the segregated US For me this book was extremely worthwhile to read because of its emphasis on culture its humor and relatable topics and the bright characters and dialogue These aspects brought me to relate to a main character that is growing up in much different situations than I am Overall this book gave me warmth to read and it will certainly remind you to find joy in difficult situations and to stay full of culture enthusiasm and perseverance I truly hope that you love this uniue book as much as I did
