    I just finished this book Jo Joe by Sally Wiener Grotta and I give it 5 *****. It is the story of a young girl who is half black and Jewish living in a small village in Pennsylvania with her white christian grandparents. It is about the torment this young girl endured from narrowed minded bigoted, racist adults and their children as they make her life miserable. It is about this young girl breaking a vow never to return to Black Bears Pa because her grandmother has died. And finally, it is about learning the truth and finding out it is very different from what she has believed all of these years. Read it and I hope you love it as much as I did.
