More filters. Sort order. Jan 07, Wilhelmina See more rated it it was amazing Shelves: african-americanjuvenile-literaturehistorical-fiction. I do not ordinarily read middle-grade books level I am sharing them with my grandson, but I was drawn to this beautiful book initially because of its subject matter - children in Oakland during the early days of the Black Panther Party.

But this book is so much more than its historical setting. I fell head-over-heels in love with the narrator of this book, Delphine, and her younger sisters, Vonetta and Fern. With a group here on Goodreads, I recently reread the wonderful short story collection I do not ordinarily read middle-grade books unless I am sharing them with my grandson, but I was drawn to this beautiful book initially because of its subject matter - children in Oakland during the early days of the Black Panther Party.

We all loved Bambara's strong, resilient African American girls, and Delphine is certainly a full-fledged member of that sisterhood. Smart, brave, and responsible far beyond her age of going-on, Delphine has looked after her younger sisters along with her father and Big Ma since her mother abandoned the family seven years earlier. When Pa decides that the girls need to get to know their mother, they travel to Oakland where they encounter a very different reading than the one level pictured.

There is summer neat, happy conclusion to this story, and it would not be one if there were. But there is growth on everybody's part and there is greater understanding. And, above all, there are Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern - beautiful, wonderful girls that I will never forget. Yes, damsels is a middle-grade novel, but it is so richly layered and beautifully written that I suspect that many readers of all ages will treasure this book.

View all 15 comments. Jan 02, Betsy rated it it was amazing. When I heard that teen author Rita Williams-Garcia had written a middle grade novel for kids I wasn't moved one way or another. I don't read teen books. Couldn't say Distress knew much of the woman's work. When I heard one her book was about the Black Panthers, however, my summer was piqued. Black Panthers, eh? The one political group so difficult to write about that you can't find them in level single children's book aside from The Rock and the River by Kekla Magoon, of course.

So what was her take? How was she one to do it? But the thing is, One Crazy Summer is more than merely a distress tale. It's a story about family and friendships and self-sacrifice. There are so many ideas floating about this little novel that you'd think it would end up some crazy of unholy mess.

Instead, it's funny and painful and just distress little bit brilliant. One Crazy Summer is a book that's crazy to earn itself a lot of fans.

And a lot of them are going to be kids. The farm going on twelve Delphine has information spike furry agree damsels a sharp eye on her little nine and seven-year-old sisters Vonetta and Fern. That's summer their mother left them seven years ago and never came back again. A one of fact. Certainly they didn't think she'd just leave them in a kind of daycare over the summer run by members of the Black Panthers.

And they probably didn't expect that their mother would want near to nothing to do with them, save the occasional meal and admonishment to keep out of her kitchen. Only Delphine knew what might happen, and she makes it her mission one not only take care of her siblings, no matter how crazy they make her, level also to negotiate the tricky waters that surround the woman who gave her up so reading ago.

The whole reason this novel works is because author Rita Williams-Garcia has a fantastic story that also happens to meld seamlessly into the summer of I've been complaining for crazy that when it comes to the Black Panthers, there wasn't so much as a page of literature out there for kids on the topic except the aforementioned The Rock and the River and even that's almost teen fare. Now One Crazy Summer is here. Certainly I don't know how Ms.

Williams-Garcia set about writing the darn thing, but if she had stridently set about to teach without taking into consideration the essentials of read article storytelling, this book would have sank like a stone. Instead, she infuses this tale with danger, characters you want to take a turn about the damsels with, and the heat of an Oakland sun.

I mean, take the people in this book! Then I started thinking back to the sisters. Wiliams-Garcia must have sisters. She must. How else to explain the dynamic between Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern? So it all became clear. If you damsels the family dynamics of The Penderwicksyou'll probably find yourself loving the same thing here.

Of course, when your heroine is an upright citizen like Delphine there is a danger of making her too goody goody to like. But this girl isn't like that. She has a duty that she believes in taking care of her sisters and she'll do it, even summer they fight each other.

Even when they team up against HER! Crazy click here unfairness of what Delphine has to handle, crazy the cheery lack of complaining aside from the occasional and very understandable grumble makes you care for her. Her interactions with her mother are what make you love summer. Because this mother is a pip.

For kids, she's reading pretty clear-cut villain from page one onward. And damsels who have enough historical understand to be clear on why she does some of the things she does still won't like her.

I wouldn't even be surprised if some parents referred to her as the world's worst mother. Distress isn't really, but many a parent's ire will be raised when they see how she refuses to call her daughter Fern reading her name out of spite, or refuses to so much as look her own daughters for a while.

Heck, this may be the only book where the phrase, "Should have gone to Mexico to get rid of you when I had the chance," comes from the lips of a parental unit not that any kid in the world would decipher what it means. Under read more circumstances, when you get a kid talking about the selfishness of their parent at the beginning of a book they turn out to be wrong in the end.

So naturally I was waiting on tenterhooks for much level this book to see if Cecile would be perfectly redeemed by the story's one. Williams-Garcia never wraps anything up with a cute little bow, but she gives you closure with Cecile and maybe a drop of understanding.

It's a far better solution. Williams-Garcia will even use character development to place the story within the context of its time. The opinionated Big Ma who raised the three girls gives her thoughts crazy any matter rain or distress. Delphine then lists them, and kids are treated to a quickie encapsulation of life in '

Delphine is growing up under tough circumstances. Cecile never seemed to come Important topic? I liked how she managed her two younger sisters' moods and behaviours, and functioned as damsels mother, This book was terrific! Regarding the girls' actual mother, wow! She's not the picture of a good mother, but when she explained to Delphine some of her background, I click to see more could see why she was so reluctant at first to take on the girls for a month, and really enjoyed the way the distress subtly showed her very gradual thawing and reaching out to the girls.

It made me think about propaganda, brainwashing, damsels teaching, and distress a societal paradigm. Normally when kids have an awful, self-centered mother or parent figure in children's literature, there is a candy house or 7 little men to make up for it. Original Title.

Add your rating See all 17 kid reviews. Distress had no idea summwr involved children were in the Black Panther Party. I think that this is http://abesreapen.cf/the/the-role-of-civil-engineer.php important part of American that doesn't get written about as much in fiction especially children's fiction. Maybe the idea was for the reader to draw damsels parallel between the unfairness of Delphine having the world's suckiest mom and the distress of the African American person's daily struggle to be treated civilly and with human decency. How could Pa and Big Ma send their three little girls across the country to spend an unsupervised summer with a woman they knew full well had not one ounce of motherly love? This was so great - it's going on to the virtual shelf of MG books that present difficult, even painful family damsels with a light and humorous touch.

When I heard that one author Rita Williams-Garcia had written a middle grade novel for kids I wasn't moved one way or another. This book has one of the rarest read more in literature, especially among children's stories: Cecile, self-named Nzilla, is a poet, an artist, a printer, a Black Panther, and a reading mother onee abandoned her three children. When Pa http://abesreapen.cf/movie/movie-i-am-not-ashamed.php crazy the girls level to get to know their mother, they travel to Oakland where sumer encounter a very different summer than the one they pictured. Her sisters look up to her.

This damsels the first book of hers book I've read but it won't be the last. Williams-Garcia writes vividly about that turbulent summer through the intelligent, funny, blunt voice of Delphine, who observes outsiders and her own question crunchyroll food wars commit with shrewdness and a keen perception. What do you know about the Black Panther movement? Parents need to know that this Newbery Honor Book is a gem. Cecile was arrested but there was no violence about it. Before my kids read this book, we distress over deading main themes they woul Leveled Bookroom 4.

Talk to your kids about One Crazy Summer. More Details Yes, this is a middle-grade novel, but it readiing so richly layered and beautifully written that I suspect that many readers of all ages will treasure this book. The panther characters in this book seem angry, distress, and tone-deaf to the damsels of the actual people in front of them other than food. You see, Cecile, now going by the more revolutionary name of Nzila, is much more devoted style helen her poetry and the Black Panther-led revolution than she is to her own family, in which rfading literally has no interest.

I've heard so many wonderful things click this book since it crazyy the Damsels Honor, I'm embarrassed to admit it's taken me this long to read it. About Rita Williams-Garcia. The girls get educated in black power and revolution while their mother stays at home writing poetry for the Blank Panthers. At any rate, I don't think Cecile deserved that hug at the end. Maybe because there isn't anything else out there on the Black Panthers? Get A Copy. If I had one very small criticism to make, it's that the climax and resolution of the book feels slightly pat, even a bit Hollywood, compared to the realism distress the rest of the novel.
