i really like this book because it talks about a girl named melba who inters an all white school, and it just talks about her hardships during the intergration process and the emotion toll it had threw her whole year at centol high school i would suggest reading this book
This was a very serious, sad, but at the same time a wonderful book.Racisim has done alot to this girl,but it did not stop her and her other 8 friends from being on top as African Americans.
Great book Just makes you a part of this awful time in our history but dose it in such a way you just can t put the book down

My heart hurt while reading this account of integration at a high school in Little Rock, Arkansas The author, Melba Beals, is one of the nine students selected for integration Her harrowing tale describes the horrors she experienced that first year The author managed to walk a fine line of showing the true horrors of daily life without becoming too graphic This is an easy read but it is definitely not easy to read because of their hardships But I think it is a MUST read and really tales the tale [...]
This is an excellent book of courage, determination, faith, hope, forgiveness, selflessness, perseverance and dedication to a cause no matter what the cost It goes so much farther than racism or segregation I highly recommend this book to anyone It is very well written and has much to teach us about the beauty of the human spirit and how to fight a true fight and win well so that real change can occur.
The book was very interesting I love reading books that involve segregation Reading the struggles that the African American went through and how they handled it A girl went to a white school and was harassed daily They didnt want blacks in their school They ended up kicking her out of the school and she pursued her dreams behind the white people without angrying the whites She went to college and became a journalist.
I m reading Warriors Don t Cry by Ian Campbell and I find it very moving how this young teenager fought to have her education that she deserved and how she stood strong even when light dynomite was thrusted at her She stood up to the bullies of the world and I hope people of the world learn from her braveness, because in my eyes, she is a true Warrior.
Considering adding this to my 9th grade curriculum Non fiction account of the Little Rock Nine and their year of integration in the 1950 s Very interesting to see how life has changed in such a short time The story is compelling and well told, with some disturbing images and language I think this could inspire some outstanding discussion in the right forum.
Warriors Don t Cry is a fasinating novel about the 9 teenagers that integrated Little Rock High School The book consists of the events they all experianced in such emotional detail I never knew how intense and serious the situation actually was until I read it I highly recomend it to anyone interested in learning about civil rights.
Wow I ll be using this with students in the fall and cannot wait to experience it alongside them it demands discussion Will pair with nonfiction, images from the time, and possibly the YAL text that just came out this past year Mentor recommended that we also consider the recent adult title exploring Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Byran s meeting as adults.
So far, I have to say that this book is the greatest History Memoir writteen in history It was a very rough time period for the Little Rock Nine It talks from Melba s one of the nine points of view as in what happenec to her eveyrday at Cental High It s a great book for anybody who s into history GREAT BOOK
It was a very emotional and nice book I think that the part when Link talks about her marrying a white person, since she said she couldn t date a white I was kinda sad when Grandma India died Honestly, she was my favorite person in the book.
It was very good
I like it so far
A good book about the human issues in the US All US citizens need to read a book like this to understand our history and treatment of the blacks in the twentieth century.
This Book Is Gettin Very Interesting Seems Very Eye Opening.
This is the story of the 9 black children who first integrated into Central High in Little Rock It is written by one of the 9 I gained such an appreciation of their sacrifice.
This is a very eye opening book Its all I have to say
This book makes it so unbeliveably hard to believe this really happened, quite an eye opener.
Not bad but I think it was scary.
It s the biggest and awesome book of all I really like this book.
Thanks for the book, mom.If we ever do achieve real racial unity in this country, I don t think it ll happen for a very long time.
This book is so boring, and makes me want to kill myself I have to read it for stupid summer reading uggghhhhhhh
I really liked this book as well It was a tear jerker.
Very interesting how adamant many people were in there determination to keep going to central even after they had suffered so much there.
An excellent, eye opening account of the Little Rock nine and the battle they faced each day to attend an integrated school.
