Little Rock Nine (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

Little Rock Nine is a graphic novel set in 1957 that uses fictional characters to relay the true story of the first nine students to successfully integrate an all-white public high school in Arkansas. It presents the perspectives of those who were for and against integration, along with their reasoning.

I enjoyed the graphics of Little Rock Nine. The imagery went along with the story very well. It was a great way to bring out the facts of the past and how far we have come as a nation. This book is great for children, but it can also serve as a fun quick read.
