So on New Year's Eve, I sat home completing my list of New Year's resolutions: 1. To do my best to stay alive until May 29. 2. To pray daily for the strength not to fight back.

Whether you remember the "civil rights firestorm" that was the 1957 integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, or just learned about it in history class, Warriors Don't Cry offers a staggering firsthand account. Melba Pattillo Beals, one of the nine black teenagers who endured deplorable threats and brutal violence for daring to attend a white school in the segregationist South, shares her incredible story, drawing from her childhood diary as well as her painful memories, still vivid several decades after the events. The ultimate triumph of the "Little Rock Nine" will astonish and inspire all who read this powerful memoir. (CH)
