My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Told in conversational free verse, the inspiring love story of Mr. and Mrs. Loving will drill directly into your heart. Told from alternating viewpoints between Richard and Millie Loving, the story begins with their childhoods and ends with the landmark Supreme Court case that acknowledged their right to live as man and wife.

Along the way, historical snippets are included to provide more context to the story. This book goes beyond historical non-fiction, however -- it addresses anxieties that teens may identify with, such as dating and pregnancy.

This story of love and justice will have a wide appeal with students and adults alike.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
