Publisher's Summary

It's 1964, and Sunny's town is being invaded. Or at least that's what the adults of Greenwood, Mississippi are saying. All Sunny knows is that people from up north are coming to help people register to vote. They're calling it Freedom Summer.
Meanwhile, Sunny can't help but feel like her house is being invaded, too. She has a new stepmother, a new brother, and a new sister crowding her life, giving her little room to breathe. And things get even trickier when Sunny and her brother are caught sneaking into the local swimming pool - where they bump into a mystery boy whose life is going to become tangled up in theirs.
As she did in her groundbreaking documentary novel Countdown award-winning author Deborah Wiles uses stories and images to tell the riveting story of a certain time and place - and of kids who, in a world where everyone is choosing sides, must figure out how to stand up for themselves and fight for what's right.

Touched my heart.

A powerful story that gave me clearer insight and understanding of the civil rights movement in the 1960's. The blending of facts and historical background really helped bring the story alive. Overall it was an amazing story that had me laughing and crying plus it taught me US history (which many of the social issues then are still here today! Excellent read.
