The Historical Novel Society has a great review of All Aboard the Schooltrain (Scholastic) by Glenda Armand, illustrated by Keisha Morris. The book tells the story of third-grader Thelma in 1930’s Mississippi and how her family becomes part of the Great Migration out of the South.
The Historical Novel Society was founded in the UK in 1997 and has since become an international resource for reviews of the best historical novels.
