Round Two continues

Today, Marching for Freedom and A Season for Gifts entered the ring.  Although anything Richard Peck writes is clever and well-designed, a fictional family tale of life in the Midwest of the 1950s, even with the fascinating Mrs. Dowdel, is no match for the real life struggle of teens in the 1960s to earn basic rights for their families and themselves.

Christopher Paul Curtis does a great job of comparing these two books.  Marching for Freedom is walking on to Round Three.
