In the fall of 1962, Belle Teal Harper arrives for her first day of fifth grade to find parents protesting the law that says Negro children can now attend school with whites. Most of her classmates don't even want to sit near Darryl, the shy new black boy in her class. But as Belle Teal gradually gets to know him, she can't understand what all the fuss is about. Belle Teal is a 2002 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People and a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2001.

    " This is a spunky heroine book that I truly like - Ann M. Martin has a gifted ear and the story is moving and rings true. While not much actually happens, the book is an excellent way to introduce children to social injustice, and to teach them about some of the more unfortunate events in our more recent history. (Desegregration/events in America in the 1960's). "

    " Belle Teal by Ann M. Martin was a real eye opener as the book explores the racism and the poor economy surrounding everyone at that time. The book allows sympathy for Belle Teal as she is used to going without, while also commending her for not listening to others and making friends with an african-american even though nearly everyone teases her and puts her down for it. I recommend this book to anyone, it will really change your life. "
