    4. Female Huck Finn or the modern Scout Finch either way this book has a strong voice in southern fiction. Nissa struggles with her parent's divorce.I loved this book personally. I could appreciate it at the adult level- the mother is struggle with independence during the 1940s. All the characters are well-developed and endearing. Upper elementary students could connect with the realistic view of family dynamics. Nissa is a great fictional character that students will relate with.


    5. I thought this was a pretty good book. I really enjoyed reading it. I love the plot and characters of the story. I think that Nissa is a great character and she has grown since the first book. I like how she went to Chicago to stay with her mother after all the changes that has happened in her life. I like the ending of the book and thought it was the right choice.
