There's a sweet, sweet smell in the air as two young girls sneak out of their house, down the street, and across town to where men and women are gathered, ready to march for freedom and justice. Inspired by countless children and young adults who took a stand, two Coretta Scott King honorees offer a heart-lifting glimpse of children's roles in the civil rights movement.


"Powerful and moving." -- Kirkus Reviews "The pervasive smell of roses is an effective metaphor for the scent of freedom in the air, and Johnson's poetic text is powerful." -- Horn Book "Powerful and moving." -- Kirkus Reviews "This book is not only about segregation; it's also about the crowds of people 'walking our way toward freedom, ' the thrilling portrait of Dr. King, and the two brave kids who cross the line." -- Booklist "Powerful and moving." -- "Kirkus Reviews" "Powerful and moving." -- "Kirkus Reviews" "Powerful and moving." -- "Kirkus Reviews" "Powerful and moving."-- "Kirkus Reviews" "Powerful and moving." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
