I read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor years ago. I have re-read it a few times since then, most recently with a group of eighth grade girls as their book club selection. Having the opportunity to reunite with the Logans felt great. It was like catching up with some good friends.
After finishing that book, I decided that with the story fresh in my mind, I should carry on with the series while I still remembered things.
