The biographical account of Claudette Colvin's life and the challenge of living under the Jim Crow laws.  As a fifteen year old African-American Claudette chose to refuse to give her seat up on the city bus to a Caucausian woman on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955.  The added features in the book, photographs from the time era, notes, website, and index are fabulous additions to the book.  Highly recommended for other school libraries, both middle school and high school levels.
