Eleven is Exciting

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2014-02-20) Good Permalink

This book is about three African American girls who want to see the Jackson Five live at Madison Square Garden.  This is a good book from an 11-year old's point of view.  A lot of surprises occur, including one at the 6th grade dance.
