Roll of Thunder,Hear My Cry

This book starts out with Cassie and her brothers Stacey,Christopher - John and Little man (whose real name is Clayton Chester) walking to school. The main point of the book is that the Logan family is sure that no matter what happens they can be happy if they have their land.  They live during a time of racism, which means people hating people because of their skin colors.  The scariest part of the book was when TJ got beaten really badly because he was being a robber.  He was good at first but he met the Simmons boys and went out committing crimes.  Another scary part was when the Logan's field caught on fire at that moment by lightening.  

I feel like this book made me happy and sad.  I would tell others to read it because it is one of the best books I have ever read.  It got his title because Cassie cries at the end, for the land and for TJ.
