Freedom Summer tells the story of two boys, Joe, a white child and John Henry, a black child, in the early 1960's. John Henry's mother works for Joe's family, the boys get to work and play together and are close friends despite social expectations. In the south at this time, many places are still segregated, like the pool and the general store. John Henry and Joe swim at the creek and John Henry is the best swimmer that Joe has ever seen. When the pool is finally becoming desegregated, the boys are so excited to finally be able to go to the pool together. Soon, they find out that the pool is being filled in rather than desegregating, breaking both of the boys hearts. They go to the general store and for the first time, get to buy ice pops together.
This is a good book to teach students about the hardships of segregation and also teaches acceptance.

Wow, what an experience this "documentary" novel is! The novel is broken up by photos, quotes, and essays from and about the 1960s. I thought it sounded kind of gimmicky, but it really brought the period alive in my imagination as I was reading. Well done, sirs and madams of Scholastic.

I'm giving this a full five stars for the combination of the originality of the design and the solid, compelling storytelling. The story is driven by Frannie's fear of nuclear annihilation combined with everyday growing up stuff. Frannie's older sister seems to have a secret life that Franny decides to investigate a la Nancy Drew. Franny's uncle suffers from PTSD and draws unwanted attention to her family. Franny has trouble with her best friend and crush on a boy at school. All the while the country is collectively holding its breath while JFK contemplates nuclear war.

I actually read another children's book recently that deals with the Cuban Missile Crisis ([b:This Means War|6659577|This Means War!|Ellen Wittlinger||6854331] by Ellen Wittlinger), and this one was much, much better. My only criticism of Countdown is that the mechanics during the climax of the book didn't logically make sense to me. Franny gets caught up in a scary situation, and I didn't really understand how it happened. It didn't take away from the overall quality of the storytelling, though.
