When 10-year old Kenny Watson road trips with his siblings from Flint, Michigan to Birmingham, Alabama, they leave their city lives behind and adapt to life with Grandma, outhouses and swimming holes. This book is laugh-out-loud funny up until the end, when the children must reckon with the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing of 1963. Perfect family read.
