Review: Illustrated by Colin Bootman. Grandmama tells her granddaughters to sit on the back seat of the bus because it's the most comfortable. Then six-year-old Sarah learns to read and she begins to understand what all the signs in the South mean. An inspiring story of dignity and strength in the black community in the 1950s.
