BOOK TALK

It is 1945 and World War II is coming to an end.  Levi Battle leaves the comforts of his Chicago home for the prejudice and racism of the South, in an effort to find his father who he believes is stationed at an army base in North Carolina.  What he finds when he reaches his father is something that he never expected - a glimpse into an unknown world filled with hate, love, patriotism, and sacrifice.  And what Levi learns about himself throughout his journey brings him closer to the one man who will never leave him again.

Prepared by Jamie Simon, who has been involved in education for 10 years as both a teacher and an administrator.
