Overview


Twelve-year-old Dawnie Rae Johnson's life turns upside down after the Supreme Court rules in favor of desegregation in the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education. Her parents decide that Dawnie will attend Prettyman Coburn, a previously all-white school -- but she'll be the only one of her friends to enroll in this new school.

Not everyone in Dawnie's town of Hadley, Virginia, supports integration, though, and much of the community is outraged by the decision. As she starts school, Dawnie encounters the harsh realities of racism. But the backlash against her arrival at Prettyman Coburn is more than she's prepared for, and she begins to wonder if the hardship is worth it. Will Dawnie be able to hold on to the true meaning of justice and remain faithful to her own sense of integrity?

The diary is about a girl Dawnie Rae Johnson, that goes to an all-white school, the only black student there. She shows how she never gave up, even though she really wanted to, that she along with her parents never gave up. The diary of Dawnie Rae Johnson is the best book I have read, in the view of a young 12 year old girl that for the first time in her life, goes to an all white school. Andrea D. Pinkney has caught the essence in the history of the segregation of the black's from white's. I have read several books as my sister has and have never seen one that even comes close to showing the true nature of what African-American's have went through doing the years. I strongly recommend this book to all. Everyone should read this diary and know that even though it is based on some fact, it shows the truth in a child's eye. Everyone go and get a copy, as every child should read it.
