Gr 2–5—Merging history and magic, this reads like a unique folktale. The KKK tries to intimidate them, but the
residents won't have it, and the town just—leaves. A text that resonates, and scenes that seem to rumble, this book
is one for the ages.

I would recommend this book for 7th and 8th graders because there are some concepts that require more maturity in the book. The book follows a boy named Lolly who lives in the projects in Harlem, New York. Lolly is struggling to cope with the recent death of his older brother Jermaine, who was shot after joining a street crew. Lolly is now at the age where he can join a street crew so he has big decisions to make. Lolly is also a Lego enthusiast and interested in architecture, this helps him cop with his grief and guilt. At the end of the book Lolly comes to realization that that who you hang out with can change you, but your own choices define who you are.… (lisätietoja)
