Minnie McClary Speaks Her Mind (Used Paperback Book) - Valerie Hobbs
Minnie McClary's life was turned upside down when her family moved from the big city to a small town, and now she has nothing but problems. Miss Marks, her new language arts teacher, thinks that the way to solve problems is to start asking questions. But Minnie has so many questions she doesn't know where to start. Like why did her father lose his job by blowing a whistle? Why is her war veteran uncle obsessed with building a helicopter in his basement? Why do people make fun of her new friend Amira's head scarf? Why do all the parents care so much about the rainbow tattoo on Miss Marks's ankle? And what do you do when you know you should stand up for what's right, but you might be too scared?
