Gloriana Hemphill, whose nickname is Glory, is an 11 year old girl growing up in the small town of Hanging Moss, Mississippi during the 1960s. It is the summer of 1964, which is known as “Freedom Summer”, and it is nothing that Glory hoped it would be. Jesslyn doesn’t want to be seen with her, Frankie is acting weird, and the community pool is closing! Although people are saying there are cracks in the pool that need fixing, Glory knows better. Glory Be is a wonderfully written historical fiction story that accurately depicts life in the South during the Civil Rights Movement, a time when hope was there, but true equality was still a long way from becoming a reality.
