Little Joe

I just finished reading Little Joe.  It is a story of a little boy who survived a fatal car crash where both his parents were killed.   He was taken to live with his grandparents on their farm in Round Rock.  It was a difficult transition for little Joe as life on a farm was new to him.  It was a harsh life set in the 1940s.  The harsh realities of racism and bullying are things Joe is learning to understand.

It was a good story and one I enjoyed reading.
