'Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice' by Phillip M. Hoose

Dramatic story of forgotten teen civil rights hero.

Age: 13+

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that amidst this award-nominated, inspirational history lesson there are mentions of upsetting violence: stories of women being raped by men in the segregated South; several teens are arrested; a girl becomes pregnant by a much older, married man; and a teen is wrongly convicted of a crime and sentenced to die. There are also several bombings of homes and churches. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
