Circle of Fire is one of many History Mysteries. This book takes place during the 1950’s. People still don’t let colored people eat, drink, or do anything at the same place white’s do, yet colored people are free. Mendy is a twelve year old colored girl who has a lot of problems on her hands. During the book she has found out that there is a band of people planning to blow up the school that Eleanor Roosevelt is going to speak at in three days! Mendy and her friend Jeffrey save the day. I liked this book a lot!!!
