With the Might of Angels, Paperback Book

With the Might of Angels Paperback

Part of the Dear America series


Twelve-year-old Dawnie Rae Johnsons life turns upside down after the Supreme Court rules in favor of desegregation in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education. Her parents decide that Dawnie will attend Prettyman Coburn, a previously all-white school -- but shell be the only one of her friends to enroll in this new school.

Not everyone in Dawnies town of Hadley, Virginia, supports integration, though, and much of the community is outraged by the decision. As she starts school, Dawnie encounters the harsh realities of racism. But the backlash against her arrival at Prettyman Coburn is more than shes prepared for, and she begins to wonder if the hardship is worth it. Will Dawnie be able to hold on to the true meaning of justice and remain faithful to her own sense of integrity?
