This book is appropriate for primary readers.
This book is about two young girls who become friends despite having both physical and social boundaries keeping them apart.
This book could be useful in teaching about friendship and comparing and contrasting.

1. I would recommend this book to higher level elementary or middle school.
2.This book goes through a young woman's life during Jim crow in the south as long as having to deal with family issues and I think that to a young student this could help them a lot through showing that this happens and help teach them how to live through that situation.
3.I would highly recommend this in my classroom because no matter what background you have you can relate in some way.

The book is decent. I can see how it's an excellent middle grade book. As an adult reader it seemed a little....not interesteing. Still the plot and character development are well done.
