Book Review: Susan Marcus Bends the Rules

Susan Marcus Bends the Rules
(C) Jane Cutler

During World War Two Susan Marcus moves from New York to St Louis Missouri, where she learns that segregation is the law in that state.  White's and Coloreds can't live together in the same building. 

Susan Marcus and her friends decide that it is time to Integrate St Louis, starting with a Chinese Restaurant, so they bring there Colored Friend Loretta over for a lunch.  It's a small step but something that they feel needs to be done.

This is a great book for children to read, after the book you could discuss Integration and Prejudice, and discuss why they felt Susan Marcus and her friends felt the need to make a change?  I would definitely by this books for the kids in my life.

Happy Reading
