THERE WAS AN awful racket and swoosh as the books John Perry carried slipped out of his arms and scattered over the floor. Wouldn’t you know he’d do it? Wouldn’t you just know it! The voice of his sister, Elizabeth, echoed through the huge waiting room. Her mother shushed her. After all, said Mrs. Perry, it’s not so terrible to drop an armload of books. It could happen to anyone. But why does it happen to us? Elizabeth cried.

I love Virginia Hamilton.

We'll spend the whole summer on the farm with Uncle Ross  . Beautifully written with magical elements. I love Virginia Hamilton.

She sat on her knees with her head pressed against the window. The glass cooled her hot face and hands and she was able to put her thoughts together. Well, the school term’s over, she said. Well, the school term’s over, she said s moved against the window but her voice made barely a sound. We’ll spend the whole summer on the farm with Uncle Ross. I ought to make up something special just because we’ve never ever gone alone like this!. She began figuring out what she might do that would be as important as travelling to the country without her father and mother

When she travels to her uncle's farm for a summer, she starts by making up new names for herself and her younger brother: "Geeder" and "Toeboy. A Coretta Scott King Award.

Geeder's summer at her uncle's farm is made special because of her friendship with a very tall, composed woman who raises hogs and who closely resembles the magazine photograph of a Watutsi queen.

As a young African-American teenager going through major surgery, this book was a such a gift that helped me to take my mind out of a semi-private room in a children's hospital, and to exercise my fantasy of being Geeder. Virginia Hamiliton's writing is simple, but powerful; the emotions very realistic and can be taken to heart. Most important, it speaks of differences among the "same"; the acceptance of the diversity.
I expect this book, like all great books, means different things to different people. A "different strokes" book - you think? Anyway, I just finished teaching a lesson to my sixth grade class from this book for about the zillionth time over a six year period. Each time, I see more in the book than before. I'm not sure where Mrs. Hamilton was going with this book, but I explained to the class that the more you read it and the more you grow, the more you will see. I never cease to be amazed at Zeely's serenity in the brutal scene of the hog drive (chapter 11) - her compassion and inner strength. In this scene, Mrs Hamilton shows us all something inside ourselves that we are seeking: inner peace in the maelstrom. Thanks for reminding us.
I'm in my late 30's now, but this book still remains one of my favorites from childhood. As a preadolescent I read this book countless times, and found it only became more engaging with each reading. I valued its realness. I often wished I could enter the worlds my books revealed, but this was the most concrete of those worlds with which I wished to engage.
This is not an easy book. Hamilton challenges her readers. Still, for children who like to read, this book is terrific.
I would give this book a star rating of two because it's a really boring book. The good points about this book are that Zeely came out better than the others in the town. This book was all about how Zeely was being teased and was talked about because of her color and how tall she was for her age. Zeely's parents both died, so Zeely has moved on to a farm with her uncle. Also Zeely turns out to look like an African American Queen.
The book Zeeiy was a book about a girl and her brother going to see their uncle.The girl's name was Elizabeth and her brother name was John.She changed their names to Toeboy witch was John and Geeder witch was Elizabeth.I like the book because in the middle of the book Toeboy saw a night traveller witch he thought it was friend but it was not a friend.
