One Crazy Summer (YA)

#18 Book Read in 2012
One Crazy Summer (YA)

Delphine and her two sisters have grown up without their mother; she left them and moved cross country.  When Delphine is 11 she and her sisters are flown out to CA to spend a month with their mother.  Their mother has cahnged her name and is involved with the Black Panthers.  She is distant from the girls.  Delphine begins to learn about the organization and what they are fighting for and also learns about her mother.

This was a good, quick read.  I did not know much about the Black Panthers and this book does not go into overwhelming detail about the organization but gives some background on it.  The sisters are well written and I was curious to see what sort of relationship they would have with their mother by the end of the book.

I borrowed this book from the public library.
