My Reviews

  • I believe No School is destined to be a 21st century classic for young adult readers. Many, like me, attended and graduated high school in Virginia in the early 1960’s. This is a must read for every high school student and adult in America.

  • A wonderful story for both young and old to read. One would never imagine what a young individual had to go through in Virginia from 1959 to 1964 to receive a public education. "No School" authored by Rita Odom Moseley, is a jewel in itself in that it tells a true story; and one that the reader will not be able to put down until they finish the entire book.
