This is a sweet middle-grade novel about identity and family, responsibility and belonging. It covers a period of time in Oakland that I know little about, and I found the perspective interesting. Sometimes authors have trouble keeping child characters acting consistent, age-wise, throughout a novel, but Williams-Garcia keeps each of the sisters distinct and consistent. ( )

"A flight from New York to Oakland, Calif., to spend the summer of 1968 with the mother who abandoned Delphine and her two sisters was the easy part. Once there, the negative things their grandmother had said about their mother, Cecile, seem true: She is uninterested in her daughters and secretive about her work and the mysterious men in black berets who visit. The sisters are sent off to a Black Panther day camp, where Delphine finds herself skeptical of the worldview of the militants while making the best of their situation. Delphine is the pitch-perfect older sister, wise beyond her years, an expert at handling her siblings: “Just like I know how to lift my sisters up, I also knew how to needle them just right.” Each girl has a distinct response to her motherless state, and Williams-Garcia provides details that make each characterization crystal clear. The depiction of the time is well done, and while the girls are caught up in the difficulties of adults, their resilience is celebrated and energetically told with writing that snaps off the page. (Historical fiction. 9-12)" A Kirkus Starred Review, www.kirkusreviews.com

In the summer of 1968, three sisters, Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern, fly from Chicago, where they live with their dad and grandma, to Oakland to stay with their mom for the summer. THe mom, formerly known as Cecile but who now goes by Nzilla, is a Black Panther. The story is told by the oldest, Delphine, who struggles with understanding why their mom left them when they were little to move out West. The girls' relationship is strained with the mom throughout the book, although at the end there is a hug-no tidy bow.
While in Oakland, the three of them spend their days at The People's Center, where they meet a sympathetic woman, Sister Mukumbu, who explains the organization and supports them The story is much more fun than I've made it sound!
Great book that teaches an important part of history, using a fun character's viewpoint to do it. Also, if you have sisters, you will recognize the dynamics! ( )

Three young girls are sent to visit their estranged mother in Oakland during the summer of 1968. The mother is despicable, which makes any reader question why their father and paternal grandmother thought this was a good idea. She makes Delphine, 11 years old, hand over all of their money when they arrive. This may be okay as a story about their summer adventure, but it sorely lacked any meaningful development of prevalent issues from that pivotal time in social issues and race relations. The sisters were essentially dumped at the Black Panthers center, where they were fed and "educated." It would have enhanced the story immensely for author Williams-Garcia to have provided a little more background on these important issues, without detracting from the story. ( )

Good thing the plane had seat belts and we'd been strapped in tight before takeoff. Without them, that last jolt would have been enough to throw Vonetta into orbit and Fern across the aisle.

"It's just the clouds bumping...We push our way into the clouds; the clouds get mad and push back. Like you and Fern fighting over red and gold crayons."...I kept on spinning straw, making everything all right. That's mainly what I do. Keep Vonetta and Fern in line. The last thing Pa and Big Ma wanted to hear was how we made a grand Negro spectacle of ourselves thirty thousand feet up in the air around all these white people.
