I m a conceited enough children s librarian that I like it when a book wins me over I don t want them to make it easy for me When I sit down to read something I want to know that the author on the other side of the manuscript is scrabbling to get the reader s attention Granted that reader is supposed to be a 10 year old kid and not a 37 year old woman but to a certain extent audience is audience Now I ll say right off the bat that under normal circumstances I don t tend to read seuels and I CERTAINLY don t review them There are too many books published in a current year to keep circling back to the same authors over and over again There are however always exceptions to the rule And who amongst us can say that Rita Williams Garcia is anything but exceptional The Gaither Sisters chronicles you could also call them the One Crazy Summer Books and I think you d be in the clear have fast become modern day literary classics for kids Funny painful chock full of a veritable cornucopia of historical incidents and best of all they stick in your brain like honey to biscuits Read one of these books and you can recall them for years at a time Now the bitter sweetness of Gone Crazy in Alabama gives us of what we want Vonetta Uncle Darnell Big Ma in a final epic bow Going to visit relatives can be a chore Going to visit warring relatives Now THAT is fun Sisters Delphine Vonetta and Fern have been to Oakland and Brooklyn but now they ve turned South to Alabama to visit their grandmother Big Ma their great grandmother Ma Charles and Ma Charles s half sister Miss Trotter Delphine as usual places herself in charge of her younger rebellious sisters not that they ever appreciate it As she learns about her family s history and the reason the two half sisters loathe one another she ignores her own immediate family s needs until the moment when it almost becomes too late I m an oldest sister I have two younger siblings Unlike Delphine I didn t have the responsibility of watching over my siblings for any extended amount of time As a result I didn t pay all that much attention to them growing up But like Delphine I would occasionally find myself trying to my mind anyway to keep them in line Where Rita Williams Garcia excels above all her peers and I do mean all of them is in the exchanges between these three girls If I had an infinite revenue stream I would solicit someone to adapt their conversations into a very short play for kids to perform somewhere actually I d just like to see ALL these books as plays for children but that s neither here nor there The dialogue sucks you in and you find yourself getting emotionally involved Because Delphine is our narrator you re getting everything from her perspective and in this the author really makes you feel like she s on the right side of every argument It would be an excellent writing exercise to charge a class of sixth graders with the task of rewriting one of these sections from Vonetta or Fern s point of view instead As I might have mentioned before I wasn t actually sold initially on this book Truth be told I liked the seuel to One Crazy Summer called PS Be Eleven but found the ending rushed and a tad unsatisfying That s just me and my hopes with Gone Crazy were not initially helped by this book s beginning I liked the set up of going South and all that but once they arrived in Alabama I was almost immediately confused We met Ma Charles and then very soon thereafter we met another woman very much like her who lived on the other side of a creek No explanation was forthcoming about these two save some cryptic descriptions of wedding photos and I felt very much out to sea My instinct is to say that a child reader would feel the same way but kids have a way of taking confusing material at face value so I suspect the confusion was of the adult variety than anything else Clearly Ms Williams Garcia was setting all this up for the big reveal of the half sister s relationship and I appreciated that but at the same time I thought it could have been introduced in a different way Things were tepid for me for a while but then the story really started picking up By the time we got to the storm I was sold And it was at this point in the book that I realized that I d been coming at the book all wrong Williams Garcia was feeding me red herrings and I m gulping them down like there s no tomorrow This book isn t laser focusing its attention on great big epic themes of historical conseuence All this book is all it ever has been all the entire SERIES is about in its heart of hearts is family And that s it The central tension can be boiled down to something as simple and effective as whether or not Delphine and Vonetta can be friends Folks are always talking about bullying and bully books They tend to involve schoolmates not siblings but as Gone Crazy in Alabama shows sometimes bullying is a lot closer to home than anyone including the bully is willing to acknowledge There s been a lot of talk lately about needing diverse books for kids and it s absolutely a valid concern I have always been of the opinion however that we also need a lot funny diverse books When most reading lists sole hat tip to the African American experience is Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry no offense to Mildred D Taylor but you see what I m getting at here while the white kids star in books like Harriet the Spy and Frindle something s gotta change We Need Diverse Books We Need FUNNNY Diverse Books too Something someone s going to enjoy reading and want to pick up again That s why Christopher Paul Curtis has been such a genius the last few years because seriously who else would explore the ramifications of vomiting on Frederick Douglass and why the name Rita Williams Garcia will be remembered long after you and I are tasty toasty worm food Because this book IS funny while also balancing out pain and hurt and hope An interviewer once asked Ms Williams Garcia if she ever had younger sisters like the ones in this book or if she d ever spent a lot of time in rural Alabama like they do here She replied good naturedly that nope It reminded me of that story they tell about Dustin Hoffman playing Richard III He put stones in his shoes to get the limp right Laurence Olivier caught wind of this and his response was along the lines of My dear boy why don t you try acting That s Ms Williams Garcia for you She does honest to goodness writing Writing that can conjure up estranged siblings and acts of nature Writing that will make you laugh and think and think again after that Beautifully done every last page A trilogy winds down on just the right noteFor ages 9 12 Silent Woods possiblePowerful and humorous this companion to the award winning One.
