Courtesy of Teens Read Too  August 2, 2011

Delphine doesn't know what to expect when she and her two little sisters fly cross-country in the summer of 1968 to visit Cecile, the mother who left them years earlier. Cecile, a dedicated poet, considers the girls an unwanted distraction, and sends them to attend a summer camp run by the Black Panthers. The story of this unforgettable summer isn't just a tale of a mother and her daughters, but of a child rediscovering and embracing her racial identity. Lyrical prose and fully-explored characters make this an excellent read for any age. Recommended for Ages 9-12.

One Crazy Summer: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


In the summer of 1968, after travelling from Brooklyn to Oakland, California, to spend a month with the mother they barely know, eleven-year-old Delphine and her two younger sisters arrive to a cold welcome as they discover that their mother, a dedicated poet and printer, is resentful of the intrusion of their visit and wants them to attend a nearby Black Panther summer camp.

In a humorous and breakout book by Williams-Garcia, the Pender wicks meet the Black Panthers in 1968 Oakland, California.
