When Chinese workers arrive on a Louisiana sugarcane plantation after slavery has ended, 10-year-old Sugar befriends the newcomers and has a chance to learn about the world beyond the cane fields and to serve as a bridge between two communities.

children's historical fiction (sugar plantation in years following Emancipation/civil war; importation of Chinese labor to replace slaves and racial relations among the three groups). [maybe 3rd-5th grades]

Characters were likeable but felt flat--Sugar felt like she'd been overly simplified (she's 10, but her thinking process was more like a 6-year-old's). I only read so far as page 36, so it's possible that the author did such a good job of handling the race issues as to earn more stars, but I am certainly not that impressed with the beginning. I did enjoy the perspective offered during description of the sugarcane harvest--all those sharp, vicious little leaves on the cane plants, etc.

In light of the new Common Core shifts, I would have liked to see richer language (more vocabulary) and a more sophisticated voice for Sugar--I know 10 is still in many ways young, but I think the target audience can certainly enjoy (and should be exposed to) more complex language than this 'everyday' kind of dialogue.

This is another from my son's Build Your Library booklist. It's a cute enough book (I was going to say "sweet"), but a little lacking in subtlety. The characters are largely indistinct, and there are at least two historically/factually questionable points I noticed (one relating to the timing of the end of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, the other to the sound a bald eagle makes). The age of the main character is a little unclear, as well. Early on, she mentions being alive for 15 years, but later says she's 10, which makes more sense based on how she acts. The author has good points to make, they just aren't made as artfully as they could have been, which is pretty common for middle-grade novels, in my experience. ( )

Sugar is a story of a young girl whose essential quality was a spirit of inquiry. Her youthful exploration was viewed as naiveté and was frowned upon by those she considered family as they went against cultural and societal norms of that era.
I observed that Sugar was a bridge in that regard. Through her persistence and unpretentious nature she brought cultures together, broke societal expectations and found freedom. This story was refreshing and encouraging as it reminded me of the necessity of a child's perspective. ( )

Sugar was a curious little girl who still lived and worked on a plantation after slavery was abolished. She didn’t see the world completely as the Beales or the plantation owner. She was open to getting to know people that didn’t look like her or share the same culture or beliefs. Sugar made a new friend named Billy and got African American and Chinese to become more than people working together in the fields collecting sugar cane. Bonds were created and friends were made because of a open minded 10 year old girl. ( )

[Starred Review] Rhodes’ book elegantly chronicles the hope of one 10-year-old girl seeking a bigger world in post–Civil War America. When Chinese laborers arrive, Sugar finally believes in a world beyond River Road Plantation. In 1870, five years after the Emancipation Proclamation, many former slaves remain on their plantations.... Rhodes exposes the reality of post–Civil War economics, when freed slaves vacated plantations, leaving former slave masters with a need for labor. ... [The author's] prose shines, reading with a spare lyricism that flows naturally. All Sugar’s hurt, longing, pain and triumph shine through. ... (Historical fiction. 8-12)

In 1870 Louisiana, five years after the Thirteenth Amendment outlawed slavery, Sugar is still bound to the crop whose name she shares.... Sugar’s caring guardians and her occasional adventures in the woods are bright spots in her life, but she feels left behind as friends head north. When "Chinamen" are hired to work on the plantation, Sugar’s community feels threatened; however, Sugar’s intuition, curiosity, and spirit move her to befriend the perceived enemy and bring everyone together. Rhodes (Ninth Ward) paints a realistic portrait of the hard realities of Sugar’s life.... Ages 8–12.
