A review by bibliomaineiac
The Good Times are Killing Me, by Lynda Barry


A lovely story, told in the voice of a young girl in the 60's. She lives on a street that has evolved from being predominately white to being mixed. The book highlights the racial tensions, and how they affected the children caught up in them. The voice of Edna is genuine. It would be a good book to help teach young people what life was like in the 60's from another child's perspective.
