Note: 
Set in mid-1970’s California, this superbly crafted coming-of-age middle grade novel tells the story of two sixth-grade boys who form an unlikely bond. Charlie, who is Jewish, learns that his closest friends will no longer be attending Wonderland School because, as one boy confesses, “My mom says it’s going downhill.” Armstrong & Charlie may serve both as an introduction to the longstanding connection between Jews and blacks in America and as an important reminder that today’s race relation problems have deep roots.
