The Watsons Go To Birmingham - 1963
I really liked this book! It was about a regular family in the 1960s. They decide to visit Kenny's grandmother in Birmingham so they can have his older brother, Byron stay with her for the summer. Byron is always getting into trouble--stealing things, picking on people, and playing with matches in the house. Kenny's parents can't stand him anymore so they decide to send him off. This book is funny, sweet, sad, and Kenny tells everything the way he sees it throughout the whole book.
