Based on a series of events in the author's life.

Publisher's Description

Author Virginia Kroll wrote Especially Heroes based on a series of incidents, all true, that had an enormous impact on her when she was a child and that continues to affect her to this day. In the story, a young girl learns firsthand that ideals must be lived out, not just talked about, and that living out ideals sometimes involves facing danger. Set in the early 1960s, Especially Heroes gives an authentic glimpse of some of the challenges of race relations during that era of the civil rights movement. Virginia Kroll's powerful childhood memories are brought to life by illustrator Tim Ladwig's unique perspective on an ordinary neighborhood of that time and the heroism of everyday people who responded with courage and caring when confronted with acts of hatred.

    Appalled!One offensive name used in book ruined it

    I was so disappointed in this book.
    I ordered two one for the Church Library and one for the Christian School. The author uses a name ( the N word!) I do not think is appropriate for anyone to say, especially in a children's book!It is offensive even if they used it for use of telling about the acceptance of others and for the time setting. But to use it in a children's book were the children are bound to repeat it, uncalled for!
    I will not send them back, I will burn them. I do not believe God looks at the color of our skin to accept us.
