POFOD
This is a wonderful book. It tells the story of a young white boy growing up in poverty in southern Florida in 1927.
It is a wonderful antidote to the multitudinous books which celebrate the Negro culture,
since it shows that the conditions in which they lived were not race-based but poverty-based.
The advent of a school teacher and the setting up of a school
brought hope and change to the children of Shack Row in Jailtown.

The most impressive feature of the book was the language, which was clear and beautifully presented.
A great primer for anybody who wants to read and write.
FailCrew
I thought this story was wonderfully told. The story is appropriate for 7th grade and up and it was a great way to make kids aware of the plight of others. I would recommend this highly. Great historical fiction.
Ces
This is not appropriate subject matter for nine year olds. Part of the story deals with a whorehouse which is not something that should be introduced at such an early age.
Runehammer
This was a wonderful story. I would have read it to my children had I known about it back then as I read many of the Soup books to them. I had tears in my eyes from the time Arly's papa died until the end.
