Overview Follow ten-year-old Joe Joe Rawlings as he faces contemporary challenges with guidance gleaned from a rich cast of historical characters in this series of books written around Christian themes for African American children, ages 6-10. Joe Joe in the City deals in a realistic but age-appropriate manner with issues and challenges facing African American children and their families in an urban environment. This fourth and final volume of Joe Joe in the City series finds Joe Joe facing gang trouble at school. He has to make a difficult decision about whether to join Tyrone and his crew, the Defenders, or to follow the example of Ralph Bunche, the first African American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize and the highest-ranking African American on staff at the United Nations. With the help of his grandmother, Joe Joe discovers the significance of Jesus' teaching "Blessed are the peacemakers"-individuals who stand apart from the crowd and help other folks work out their problems.

Reviews - What do customers think about I'll Do The Right Thing?
excellent for young readers Aug 1, 2007
her writing style is current and intelligent at the same time. The issues faced by inner-city youths are expertly addressed in this great addition to the series. I was at a reading by her with my son, and he loved it.
