    Story
    (13)

    On March 2, 1955, a slim, bespectacled teenager refused to give up her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus in Mont-gomery, Alabama. Shouting "It's my constitutional right!" as police dragged her off to jail, Claudette Colvin decided she'd had enough of the Jim Crow segregation laws that had angered and puzzled her since she was a young child.

    Talia says: "The funny yet touching story of women leders!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Claudette Colvin again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again because it was empwering to women all over the world.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the woman took action first and that she was a student and not an adult.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes it did.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part that moved me the most was when she stood up for her own rights and for blacks all over the south.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best books that I have ever read (after the Hunger Games)!
