Publisher's Summary

It's 1964, and Sunny's town is being invaded. Or at least that's what the adults of Greenwood, Mississippi are saying. All Sunny knows is that people from up north are coming to help people register to vote. They're calling it Freedom Summer.

Meanwhile, Sunny can't help but feel like her house is being invaded, too. She has a new stepmother, a new brother, and a new sister crowding her life, giving her little room to breathe. And things get even trickier when Sunny and her brother are caught sneaking into the local swimming pool - where they bump into a mystery boy whose life is going to become tangled up in theirs.

As she did in her groundbreaking documentary novel Countdown award-winning author Deborah Wiles uses stories and images to tell the riveting story of a certain time and place - and of kids who, in a world where everyone is choosing sides, must figure out how to stand up for themselves and fight for what's right.

    "Excellent book for white teens and tweens"

    The multiple cast recording for this book is fantastic but I recommend getting the physical book as a companion sober it is loaded with pictures and documents.
    As a teacher, I highly recommend this book as a learning opportunity for 5th-8th grade and parents should read along with their kids and help them get the most out of the experience as it will likely yield many productive questions.
    I am interested to hear what persons of color may think about this book as it written by a white author and the primary character is a white girl.

    Story
    "One of my favorites, ever!"
    Would you listen to Revolution again? Why?

    This is a wonderful blend of non-fiction woven together with an historical fiction story-line. I thought I knew a lot about the Civil Rights Movement, but I knew virtually nothing about Freedom Summer in Mississippi. So educational. And moving, too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Revolution?

    The varied voices on the audiobook give this a genuine feeling, and compliments the actual text in significant ways. The two should really go together, the text version of the book has great pictures.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    It's the combination of voices in this book that matters, not just one voice.


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

    Several.

    Story
    "A story and a history lesson continues..."

    This book improves on the last (although the threads to the last book are tenuous enough that you could start with this one)

    It takes one of the characters a couple of years forward into 1964 Mississippi on the Freedom train.

    The main character ventures beyond her safe confined world and learns to deal with the changes inside and outside her home.

    This interspersed with "newsreel" type vignettes makes for a great listen.
