Gabriel King was a born chicken. He’s afraid of spiders, corpses, loose cows, and just about everything related to the fifth grade. Gabe’s best friend, Frita Wilson, thinks Gabe needs some liberating from his fears. Frita knows something about being brave, she’s the only black kid in school in a town with an active Ku Klux Klan. Together Gabe and Frita are going to spend the summer of 1976 facing down the fears on Gabe’s list. But it turns out that Frita has her own list, and while she’s helping Gabe confront his fears, she’s avoiding the thing that scares her the most.

    " This story and its characters really drew me in. I liked it a lot. A very entertaining, yet sobering, indication of the era in which it was set. Here's to "liberatin'!" :) "

    " This book gave me an idea of how to get rid of my fears. I also liked how the friends helped each other get over their fears. They were very good to each other. It also gave me an idea of what things were like in 1976. "
