Glory Be
by Augusta Scattergood
A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM
2013 Kids Wings Top Flight Award
Hardcover Book
Kindle Edition

Except for the sweltering heat, summer in Hanging Moss, Mississippi, in 1964 promised to be terrific for Gloriana Hemphill. Sharing a birthday with the United States of America, Glory loved the fireworks that would accompany her party! She loved fried chicken, Elvis songs, cooling off in the community pool, and when the sun went down, the lightning bugs that danced in the air as she playing kick the can with her friend Frankie and the other neighborhood kids. She knew her twelfth birthday would be the best yet.

But Frankie was the first one to hint at trouble ahead. How could they close her swimming pool before her birthday? Did it have something to do with the new girl who moved to Hanging Moss from the North? (The one who wears heavy black socks with clodhopper sandles and drank out of the wrong water fountain.) The pool had always been segregated. That was okay, wasn't it? Why should that change? How could everyone cool off it the pools were closed?

Glory had to dig deeper into what was happening to discover answers, to understand why feelings were hurt, and what was NOT fair. Friendships and family got all mixed up in hateful talk and accusations. The town is split by angry opinion that is turning to hurtful actions. What is right? What is true? Who is lying?

What about Emma? ... Emma whose skin was the color of coffee, Emma who had cooked, cleaned, and cared for Glory and her older sister for years since their mother died ... Will Emma be able to explain? Will Emma help her to understand? But why is Emma upset? Doesn't she want Glory to get to go swimming?

Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood allows readers to see history through the eyes of those who experienced it and felt the emotions that were stirred as our country faced long-needed changes to repair wrongs that had become embedded in its traditions since the Emancipation Proclamation.

This novel and the Kids Wings literature guide can help readers analyze a social problem with the courage and determination that was necessary to change "what we have always done" into what is right because "all men are created equal."

The Kids Wings literature guide and Jeopardy-type game provide beautifully planned curriculum that leads to the development of character, academic skills, teambuilding, and guarantees thoughtful social and exciting academic growth for every classroom. It is an essential part of every home and school library.
