Historically Correct

Review by Chicken1W

This book was good. If you like short books, historical fiction books, or both, this is the book for you.

A Must-Read

Review by born2swim

Susie Q Fights Back was a very good book and definitely a must-read. One thing I liked about this book was the way it was told. By telling the story from Susie's perspective, it made the whole thing a lot more interesting. Another thing that I liked was that it was about both Judaism, and segregation against colored people in the time when the story is set. This book includes a bit of humor, mystery, sadness, excitement, and most of all, adventure. So get ready to sit down to turn the pages of Susie Q Fights Back!
