Item description for Junebug and the Reverend by Alice Mead...

Junebug is set to leave all his old problems behind when his family moves from the projects to a better neighborhood. But new problems crop up when he runs into school bullies and has trouble making new friends. His younger sister, Tasha, quickly fits in and makes friends with the tenants in their building, a group home for the elderly that their mama supervises.

When summer vacation starts, Junebug's lazy-day plans are squashed when Mama tells him to take walks with cranky old Reverend Ashford every day and play soccer with the very same school bullies that beat him up. Is this any way to spend summer vacation? Little does Junebug know that there are some lessons you don't learn in school.

Reviews - What do customers think about Junebug and the Reverend?

Henry's Review of Junebug and the Reverend  May 14, 2007
I like the first book called Junebug because the book is like my life. Like the part when he said he lives in a bad place, I used to live in a bad place too called Chelsea. One part that I think is important is when Darrel left and then later a guy came looking for Darrel. Then Junebug told the guy that Darrel went somewhere. I think that part was important because Junebug kept his promise.
I think he is real because he talks about his life and how he lives and where he lives. He also talks about his family and how his dad is in jail. He talks like a real person.
At first I was going to read this book because it had gangsters, drugs and thugs. But then I got really into it, so I read all of the Junebug books. I got so into it because there are lives that are like that. There are people that live in the projects and there are gangs.
The part I really liked in the second book was when he got jumped because it felt so real. There are people that fight only because someone said something bad about them so they want to go fight that person who said that. That really didn't happen in the book but that happens. I also think that it is so cool how he got to go to the boatyard. I wish I could that some day.
It is exciting because of all the things that happen. The important things are like don't fight, stay away from drugs, and don't be in gangs they just get you into trouble.

Junebug is a sweet book  Jun 8, 2000
Junebug's life is changing from the old world he used to know. He, his mother and sister Tasha have left the projects and onto a better way of life. But the change is not as happy as he first expects it to be. His close family seems to be going their own way and he fears that they are drifting apart. Tasha makes friends easily, while Junebug is tormented by bullies (worse his mother insists he play soccar with them!). His mother finds a new romance which is hard for him to cope with, and as if that wasn't enough, Junebug must now spend some time everday walking with a cranky elderly "Reverand" as part of his new responsibilites. His hopes of having a lazy summer squashed, Junebug tries to adjust to his new surroundings. In the process he learns a great deal about family ties, and himself.

This book is a sequel to JUNEBUG but you needn't have read the first to enjoy JUNEBUG AND THE REVERAND. I immediately liked the sweet character of Junebug the moment he appears on the page...probably because I know a kid just like him and I so seldom see such boys portrayed as realistically in print. He is thoughtful, kindhearted and resilient -- you can't help but take him into your heart. It is refreshing to see such an honest portrayel of children and community and I look forward to reading more about Junebug's growing up years. This is a book to be shared with your children.
