    I mean I m not this kind of book person but this book made it seem like these kinds of books aren t so bad, it made twist that you really wouldn t expect and you do have to infer a little bit stuff but that s ok cause it doesn t just strait up tell you which makes it a good book.

    I really enjoyed this book I learned a lot of interesting stuff about Jimmy Carter, and the premise was cute The book is short, but just the right length.

    Yesterday I saw this book sitting on the bookshelf in the 5th grade classroom where I was substituting I picked it up to read during lunch, continued reading it during afternoon recess, and finished it after the students went home at the end of the day I loved it Couldn t put it down What a sweet sweet story.Gabriel King is a nine year old boy who is afraid of lots of things spiders, basements, loose cows, ghosts, missing the school bus, killer robots, alligators, and getting his hand chopped off in his momma s new blender to name a few Mostly he s afraid of moving up to 5th grade next year 5th grade means outside gym with the 6th graders, cafeteria time with the 6th graders, and recess with the 6th graders Sharing time and space with the 6th graders also means being near Duke Evans and Frankie Chapman, the two boys who routinely torment and bully him Gabriel decides he s going to stay in 4th grade and not move on to 5th next year His best and only friend Frita decides he just needs a little liberatin from his fears During the summer she says I m going to liberate you from this situation and we re gonna take care of business Just you wait Don t matter he tells her I m not movin up anyway I ve decided it I ll just get beat up on every day, so I might as well stay back I d rather be alive in 4th grade than dead in the 5th Frita knows how to help someone be brave and face their fears She s the only African American student in school in a town with an active Ku Klux Klan She stood up to Mr.Evans, Duke s racist father who called her that n r gal in front of the students, teachers, and parents on the last day of school Frita comes up with a plan for Gabriel Something to help you stop being chicken Make a list, everything you re afraid of Then we ll cross em off, one by one, saving Duke Evans and the 5th grade for last when you re the most brave Together Gabe and Frita are going to spend the summer of 1976 facing down the fears on Gabe s list But it turns out that Frita has her own list, and while she s helping Gabe confront his fears, she s avoiding the thing that scares her the most I loved this story for so many of the messages and themes found within the pages supportive best friends, loving families, self worth, standing up for yourself even when you re afraid, working through your fears, The Civil Rights Movement, bravery, and courage There is also a great story about how Jimmy Carter who was running for president during the time this story takes place was the only white person in his town to stand up to the KKK Gabriel s dad tells him this story when he asks why the KKK doesn t like black people Highly recommended 5 stars.

    I liked the two children and their summertime adventure of overcooming their fears Children can relate to these characters, however, the themes of civil rights, Jimmy Carter s election, and the Bicentennial do not ring true in this setting for me That said I actually lived in small town Georgia prior to and after Carter s election and worked as an elementary school librarian with 200 students Yes, we had bullies, we were an integrated school, had a huge gap from very high to very low economic status which makes me say in 1976 that a sleepover with a black girl and a white boy wouldn t have happened and probably not having dinner at each other s homes, blacks and whites would not have been speaking on the same platform for Carter Makes me wonder if the author did any research on this historic aspect of her story I was going to hand this on to my daughter s classroom in Arkansas, but it goes in a library booksale Also I will be finding some reviews of this title to see if anyone had a similiar viewpoint as mine.

    The story of book is very interesting which always attract me to read and to find out what happen next So I finish it very quickly.Gabe is a small boy, and afraid of lots of things, spiders, corpses, loose cows, and just about everything related to the fifth grade He doesn t want go to fifth grade because there are some big strong guys always bully him His best friend Frita Wilson, thinks Gabe needs some liberating from his fears, and she has a plan They are going to spend the summer of 1976 facing each and ever one of the fears on Gabe s list Frita also make the list, during the time they help each other to cross off the list for growing courage.But as the day become school day, Gabe still don t want go to fifth grade even tough he cross off a lot of things that he afraid of because he still afraid of the big strong guy which are Duke and Frankie And he thought Frita wouldn t need him that much if he doesn t go to fifth grade But Frita s brother just give him her list The last thing Frita wrote about what she afraid is not having Gabe with me in the fifth grade Well now he knows that Frita really care about him like he does.Gabe s pop told him one sentence that makes big point to him Ain nothing so scary when you ve got people you love It was like a lock found its key and sprung open Gabe suddenly got the answer for all Fifth grade is scary, but if he stay at fourth grade, he won t have Frita with him That s what being brave was all about So he finally decide go to fifth grade.And in the end he doesn t scare of them any because he got the people that he love and he know they will always by his side and support on him.The story is very lovely and made a lot of good point to the reader The last sentence that really got my feeling Then maybe they d figure out what love and courage were all about, and life would spring open like a lock that found it s key That is real truth for me, because for me love is very important And I think everyone think that too, if we find out love and courage beside us, life will be so much beautiful.

    civil rights fear anxietyQuick read set in the 70 s Loved the aspect of facing fear and anxiety, which is why I purchased it The friendship between and white and black student however was a bit of a stretch of the imagination and perhaps a bit of wishful thinking on the part of the author But loved the fact that it had a strong female protagonist and depicted the possibilities of friendship across racial lines but as historical fiction it would require a bit too much suspension of belief, pity it wasn t set in another time frame as that may have run truer.

    Gabriel and Frita have pinky promised each other to make a list of fears and then work through them together Gabriel is afraid of things than Frida The one fear that sparks the promise is moving on to fifth grade The book is set in 1976 and deals with racism, the election, as well as the main conflict of Gabriel s fears.A sweet little story about two best friends going on little adventures together over the summer Frida is a sweetheart and I rooted for Gabriel the entire time.One caveat the rally ending is a bit rushed We re only given 23 pages from the idea of having the rally to the end of the novel As an adult reader, I adore a courageous ending of fighting off racism with friendship and love, but I know it doesn t work like that I wish Going had explored it just a little bit .

    read for the theme takes place in the decade you were bornWhat a great book to teach kids to overcome their fears I feel like it did a great job conveying the message we are all alike, everyone is afraid of something It also had a back plot of the segregation movement in the 70s That little Frita is one tough girl I thoroughly enjoyed this and would recommend even to adults.

    This was one that I read as a kid, and like all of those childhood books that are also about racism or abuse or poverty and are also good, by the way, this doesn t include the heavy handed ones where they shoehorn in a moral like they ll be shot if they don t , it has a different flavor reading it as an adult Like Jesus Christ.
