Crow by Barbara Wright

Prepare to be sucked into this book like crumbs into a vacuum cleaner…

As the election approaches, it is becoming more and more dangerous to go out onto the streets, with members of the Red Shirt gang on every corner. With the help of Tommy, a new-found friend, Moses is able to smuggle Alfred Manly into hiding. Following that, a tragedy constructed by a mob of angry people wanting Alfred…

The reason why the people wanted Manley so much puzzled me a little, so I wouldn’t recommend Crow until you are ten and up, as it will be easier to understand then. It also does contain a word put in shocking terms, and two burning tragedies. The sadness of one of the people whom a tragedy affected was not described vividly enough, but imagination can do that if you have a good one. Other than that, I would highly recommend this book.  I also found it interesting to learnmore about the history of African Americans. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
