A 2014 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST It's 1964, and Sunny's town is being invaded. Or at least that's what the adults of Greenwood, Mississippi, are saying. All Sunny knows is that people from up north are coming to help people register to vote. They're calling it Freedom Summer. Meanwhile, Sunny can't help but feel like her house is being invaded, too. She has a new stepmother, a new brother, and a new sister crowding her life, giving her little room to breathe. And things get even trickier when Sunny and her brother are caught sneaking into the local swimming pool?where they bump into a mystery boy whose life is going to become tangled up in theirs. As she did in her groundbreaking documentary novel Countdown , award-winning author Deborah Wiles uses stories and images to tell the riveting story of a certain time and place?and of kids who, in a world where everyone is choosing sides, must figure out how to stand up for themselves and fight for what's right.

In 1960s Mississippi, hoardes of young people are coming to Sunny’s town to fight for the African American right to vote. Nothing will ever be the same again, not for Sunny, her family, their town, or even the United States.

Amazing historical fiction book! I went back and forth from paper to audiobook and both were amazingly well done...if you get a chance to listen to the in-between the chapter parts of the audiobook, and also see the visuals in the paper copy, it's totally worth it.

I loved this historical fiction book about the summer of 1964, Freedom Summer. It is a book about friendship, civil rights, family and doing what is right. Plus, it is filled with photographs, nonfiction essays and a compelling story. I'd recommend this book to both adults and young adults. I couldn't put it down.
