The Liberation of Gabriel King by K.L. Going

The Liberation of Gabriel King
by
K.L. Going

The year is 1976.

It is summertime in Georgia.

She is African American. He is caucasian.

Her name is Frita.  His name is Gabriel.

They’re both going into the 5th grade.

They both are victims of bullies.

Frita tells Gabe he has to be brave and face his fears.

But, Frita has fears of her own.

They both stand tall.

They both face their fears.

They both succeed.

The Liberation of Gabriel King is a delicate story that will warm your heart.  Best suited for students in grades 4-8, this book will certainly open the door for much conversation.  My favorite quote from the book is, “Do you want to let someone take something from you that you can never get back again?”  

I laughed, I cried, and I couldn’t put it down!

 I loved it so much; it earns *5 Hearts*.

So what am I reading? The Liberation of Gabriel King

What am I eating? Monster Trail Mix from my favorite store, Target 🙂
