Library Loot ~ December 3-9

A Friendship for Today ~ by Patricia C. McKissack, 2007, YA fiction (Missouri)
The year is 1954, the place is Missouri, and twelve-year-old Rosemary Patterson is about to make history.  She is one of the first African American students to enter the white school in her town.  Headstrong, smart Rosemary welcomes the challenge, but starting this new school gets more daunting when her best friend is hospitalized for polio.  Suddenly, Rosemary must face all the stares and whispers alone.  But when the girl who has shown her the most cruelty becomes an unlikely confidante, Rosemary learns important truths about the power of friendship to overcome prejudice.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire @ The Captive Reader and Linda @ Silly Little Mischief that encourages us to share the names of books we checked out of the library.  See what others got this week.
