There is so much to admire in Zora and Me by Bond and Simon The authors have created a believable and heartfelt storyup to a point The language sense of place and a peek at a fictionalized version of the early days of a formidable writer and all of this for children is indeed an admirable accomplishment Writing historical fiction for this age group 10 and up is challenging but nevertheless a challenge worth taking up How does an author tell a rich and compelling story especially one that addresses issue of race as set in Jim Crow south in an age appropriate manner The story in Zora and Me falls just short of keeping its contract with children as it enters the complex world of racial conflict and issues of identity The dark subject matter that descends in the last third of the book may be appropriate for an older YA readerSusan Austin author of The Bamboo Garden
