A book summary
Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood explores the racial issues of the South in the early 1960s.
As much as Gloriana June Hemphill, or Glory as everyone knows her, wants to turn twelve, there are times when Glory wishes it was still last year. Jesslyn, her sister, no longer has time for her now that she’s on the pep squad and she’ll be entering high school. Her best friend, Frankie suddenly isn't acting the way he always has. The new girl from Ohio doesn't know how things have always been. And the debate about whether or not the town should keep the segregated public pool open is threatening to ruin her summer.
