As Fast As Words Could Fly

By Wrapped in Foil

Can you imagine being the first African American teenager entering a classroom that had previously been for whites only? It is hard enough to be a new student in a new school, yet alone having to break down barriers as you go. Yet Mason Steele manages to find success in this challenging environment using his determination and award-winning skill at typing. His story is one of quiet courage that brings about change. . . . Educators will definitely pull out As Fast As Words Could Fly for Black History Month and units on the Civil Rights movement, but this book really should be allowed to stand on its own merit as a fabulous story.
