Name: Cassie Logan
Books: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Series) by Mildred D Taylor
Get to Know Her: Coming from a black family living in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, Cassie has a tough life, and she doesn’t completely understand why. She’s nine, the only girl out of the four children of the Logan family. She has a hot temper and a smart mouth, but she loves her family and is fiercely protective over them.
Why I Love Her: I first loved Cassie simply because of how perfect her sibling relationships were. While they annoyed and got into fights with each other, they were still protective of each other. But Cassie is smart and loyal and sassy and I really love not only her but her entire family.
Favorite Quote: What had happened to T.J. in the night I did not understand, I knew that it would not pass. And I cried for those things which had happened in the night and would not pass.
