A three-star story but bonus points for having such a clear author's note separating fact from fictional liberties. ( )

RGG: Very strong fictional biography conveying the time, the personal challenges, and the racism while developing an empathetic portrait. Unfortunately, the cover targets the book towards younger readers than the actual reading interest of 10-14.

Betty Before X is the story of young African-American girl growing up in the 1940's in Detroit. Betty was born to Ollie Mae, but taken to live with her Aunt Fannie Mae. When Betty has just turned 7, Fannie Mae dies and Betty moves to Detroit to be with her mother. Things are very difficult at home, however, and readers will twist inside reading instances of emotional and physical abuse (though nothing which is inappropriate for the target age group). Luckily, Betty is able to run away and live with a trusted, loving couple in her community. As Betty grows, she joins the Housewives League, witnesses the impact of institutional racism and police brutality, and finds her inner strength and hope in the face of incredible adversity. Those readers who have researched will know that this strong young woman will grow up to be best known as the wife of Malcolm X, but this story is all Betty's. The depictions of loss, friendship, hope, and struggle are exceptional, with a crisp narrative that is both evocative and efficient. There is no excessive description or filler to be had here. Beyond being a brilliant historical perspective and engaging novel, Betty Before X mirrors all too well the current social and political climate, calling attention to the continued inequality in our country. This should be required reading for everyone - young and old alike. ( )

This book is in the historical fiction genre and is great for students from 3rd grade to 5th grade. I rated this book a 4/5 because I liked the information learned, however it was very detailed and could be confusing or misunderstood by some readers. It is very important that students understand the history of slavery beforehand and the horrible actions that took place in order to understand the story fully. This book uses a great movement in history to help students learn about the events. One thing I enjoyed was the authors style and format. The main message behind this book would be courage and resilience when it comes to doing what is right. ( )

Chronicles the life of Betty Shabazz as a young girl. From being raised by a paternal aunt in the South and moving to Detroit in the 1940s, the book follows Betty's development into a teenager. A difficult relationship with her biological mother ends with her living with the Malloy family, church leaders and activists promoting black businesses as a way to promote independence and rights.
A strong afterward gives additional insights into Betty's story.
