I am about 60 pages into this book and I am enjoying the characters and connections to history immensely Suddenly I am blindsided by the revelation that this story is going to include an LGBTIA storyline as well This is a complicated but real issue in the lives of young people I believe I have a responsibility to help my students navigate the issue and to play a role in guiding them toward a right response to the people they may encounter I appreciate that the author has handled the topic very well and appropriately in the story In my opinion this would be a book I would want to use in teaching about civil rights for all people However this was not a book I purchased to teach to my class This was a book I picked up to put on my general reading shelf because it won a Coretta Scott King Award and because all the descriptions I found of it described it as a mystery with connection to the civil rights movement in the early to mid 20th century I had no clue I was purchasing a book with the LGBTIA issue woven into it I cannot place a book with such a charged topic included in it that kids would read without the benefit of an adult to guide them through it I realize this opinion may not be popular I like the book I find merit in the way the themes are presented and handled in the plot I do not like that this book is marketed as something different than what it is If it is going to include themes regarding human sexuality and gender identity and it is marketed to 10 12 year olds please give teachers and parents the full information so that we can choose well I am not in able to add this book to my general collection I will keep it for possible use later or if the right student family enters my classroom I felt the descriptions of this book intentionally left out information I felt tricked in a sense There would not have been a spoiler effect to share at least a hint that the rights talked about would go beyond those of African Americans I should not have to read every customer review to find out the key information to help me make an informed purchase
