Liberation of Gabriel King

Liberation of Gabriel King

Sometimes it just seems as though life is full of really hard and scary things to do. For Gabe King, who is white, going into the fifth grade is one of those hard and scary things, and he does NOT intend to do it. But his friend, Frita Wilson, who is African-American, is one of those people who can look life right in the eye and face up to just about any challenge. Where Gabe fears, Frita thrives. So this summer she has decided to help Gabe build his courage muscle. This is an amazing story of two children who are confronting fear while surrounded by an adult world of racism and cowardice.
