Description
Another powerful story in the Logan Family Saga and companion to Mildred D. Taylor's Newbery Award-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

A day of conflict and tragedy. Cassie Logan and her brothers watch as the weekly bus from Jackson comes splashing through a heavy rainstorm--they are there to see their grandmother off on a trip. One by one, the passengers board the bus. But this is Mississippi in the 1930s, so when several white passengers arrive at the last minute, the driver roughly orders the black passengers off the bus, including Cassie's grandmother. Then, disaster strikes in the rain, and the children witness a shocking end to the day's drama. "Taylor, a powerful storyteller, again combines authentic incidents to create a taut plot...Her cry for justice always rings true."--Kirkus Reviews
