    Book Description:
    When four courageous black teens sat down at a lunch counter in the segregated South of 1960, the reverberations were felt both far beyond and close to home. This insightful story offers a child’s-eye view of this seminal event in the American Civil Rights Movement. Connie is used to the signs and customs that have let her drink only from certain water fountains and which bar her from local pools and some stores, but still … she’d love to sit at the lunch counter, just like she’s seen other girls do.
    Showing how an ordinary family becomes involved in the great and personal cause of their times, it’s a tale that invites everyone to celebrate our country’s everyday heroes, of all ages.
