The Mighty Miss Malone
Christopher Paul Curtis
4 out of 5
The Great Depression is what hurts the Malones the most. Deza Malone is a twelve-year-old African-American girl living in Gary, Indiana. No one, not even Deza, the smartest girl in her class could predict the events that will happen next to the Malone family. I liked that this book was written from Deza’s perspective. I would recommend this book to girls from ages 9-13.
