This unusual story mixes the Civil Rights Movement and angels as 11-year-old Celli confronts painful realities in small-town Georgia. Flo Gibson gives life to a painful time and adds a dimension of reality to the fairy tale as Celli encounters her black guardian angels. Through the innocent eyes of a child Murphy and Gibson share a poignant and frightening view of the KKK, black and white relationships, and growing up. Children will encounter an outstanding history lesson by meeting other youngsters whose words personalize this story. Listeners of all ages cannot fail to love and admire Celli. S.G.B.
