I chose Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood because it is a mixture of two of my favorite genres, history and fiction. The cover caught my eye and I read the back. It is about a girl named Glory, who is living her life in Hanging Moss, Mississippi, in 1964. She has her ups and her downs, and this book has a lot of real life situations that happened in the 1960’s, like racism. My favorite part is when Glory explains what “Junk Poker” is to her friend, Laura.
So in summary, I think that Glory be is fantastic. Augusta Scattergood did a really good job describing the characters. I really like this book and you might like it too.
