Revue de presse
* "This [novel] grows with convincing detail of character and situation, punctuated by tension-building incidents ... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence."--Booklist, starred review
"The events and setting of the powerful novel are presented with such verisimilitude and the characters are so carefully drawn that one might assume the book to be autobiographical, if the author were not so young."--The Horn Book
"The strong, clear-headed Logan family... are drawn with quiet affection and their actions tempered with a keen sense of human fallibility."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer review

I read this book on my own in third grade, and read it in school in eighth grade, so I think it has a good range of ages. I'm in college and I still like re-reading it. There are a lot of good themes/issues to explore with your kids or students if you read this book with them.
I was introduced to this book when it was assigned as a literature study in my English class. Though I, along with others, groaned when the assignment was made, I have greatly taken that moan back. Once I started, I couldn't stop. The author's supense, humor, setting, and a great use of southern dialect for the dialogue make this book a hard one to put down. Though I have only read this book once, I plan to read it many, many times in the future. Take my advice, this book is unbelivable. Don't let the dust gather on it too much longer; it deserves to be read and cherished.
The story takes the reader through a year of nine-year-old Cassie Logan's life. Living in Mississippi in the 1930s, life was often cruel and unjust to Cassie and her African American family and friends. I felt the ache of longing for justice over the fact that Cassie and her brothers had to walk several miles to school while the white children taunted them from their bus, whose driver daily tried to run Cassie and her brothers into the muddy, water-filled gullies along the side of the road. I laughed with delight at the siblings' clever and successful plot of revenge against their taunters. I shivered with horror over the barbaric act carried out by the men who burned members of the Berry family over a false accusation and got away with it. I relished the way the Logans truly loved each other and took care of one another, grateful that I could relate in my own relationships with my parents and siblings.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is wrapped up in the nostalgia of my childhood when I was just beginning to think for myself. It greatly influenced me. I am always looking for thought-provoking, noble literature to read to my own children. It is a wonderful book to read out loud to children ages eight and older. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is a masterpiece of storytelling at its very best.
