This was one of the most entertaining books that I've read lately. It was great being able to read a book fit for children language-wise and still adult content-wise. I say there should be more of this type of books available, especially in ebook format.
This story is a wonderful and touching account of a 13 year-old girl facing racism and the Ku Klux Klan for the first time in her life. Although a little scary at times, you will be inspired by the courage of Jessilyn and her family as they deal with prejudice in the South during the Great Depression.
Loved this book! Read it in only two days; not the norm for me. I couldn't put it down. Always wondering, what in the world is that child, Jessilyn, going to get into next? She has obviously never heard that curiosity killed the cat. LOL Read it; you will enjoy it.
This book was absolutely fantastic! I could not get my hands off of it. I finished Fireflies in December and Cottonwood Whispers in two days. Jennifer Erin Valent is just the author I'm looking for. I have so many favorite books but this just topped them. It takes an amazing time period and then adds in suspense, romance, friendships, and God. I love the title, the book, the everything! I CANNOT WAIT to see what Jennifer Valent writes next...and I am counting the days until Catching Moondrops comes out. Thanks for the wonderful read!
Altho this was a fiction - the author did a great job in portraying what actually happened in too many cases. Made me think and be thankful for my upbringing which did not include any of the horrors of this story.
