As Fast As Words Could Fly

Written by Pamela M. Tuck and Illustrated by Eric Velasquez

Mason Steele is proud of his father's work with a civil rights group and writes handwritten notes about his father's work. He is very excited when his father comes home with a typewriter for him, which he quickly learns to use. Mason puts his new skill to good use when he is sent to an all-white school as part of victory in a desegregation lawsuit. Then Mason finds a way to really make a difference.
