Praise and Accolades for Glory Be: A NPR "Backseat Book Club" selectionFeatured on NPR's "Weekend Edition"with Scott Simon A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeThere's a whiff of Carson McCullers in Augusta Scattergood's story of a sultry Southern summer long ago when the outside world moved all the markers of Glorianna Hemphill's growing up. It's a summer of bigotry and behive hairdoos, of sit-ins and dangerous boys. All mixed together and beautifully recalled.--Richard Peck, Newbery Award-winning author of A Year Down YonderGlory Be is a lovely debut novel for younger readers, akin to Kathryn Stockett's The Help--an important read that raises powerful racial issues of the 1960s American South.--Kathryn Erskine, National Book Award-winning author of MockingbirdGlory Be weaves a seamless story of sisterly love, broken friendships, and the strength that it takes to stand up for the right thing. Augusta Scattergood is at the top of my debut-authors-to-watch list.--Barbara O'Connor, Parents' Choice Award-winning author of How to Steal a DogIn Glory herself, tilting on the threshold of adolescence, Scattergood paints a balanced portrait of childlike selfinterest and awakening integrity. This moving, intimate look at America's struggle for civil rights, as seen through the narrow lens of one growing girl, will spark interesting discussion.--BooklistThis debut offers a vivid glimpse of the 1960s South through the eyes of a spirited girl who takes a stand.--Kirkus ReviewsScattergood's effective snapshot of the fight against segregation, one town at a time, makes personal the tumultuous atmosphere of the times.--Publishers WeeklyGlory is an appealing, authentic character whose unflinching convictions, missteps, and reflections will captivate readers.--School Library Journal
