Cassie is the second oldest child in her family. She's intelligent, loyal, and very protective of her brothers and sisters. She also has an easily sparked temper and is likened to her Uncle Hammer who's pretty temperamental himself.

When we first meet Cassie she has no idea what racism is, let alone what it really means. She's only nine, but is becoming aware of different types of injustice. The differences between she and other children are becoming apparent too; the biggest being the difference in skin color and a difference she isn't going to accept.

As the novel moves on, you will see Cassie's transformation. She chooses her causes well and isn't opposed to protesting what she believes to be unjust. She's a bit of a spitfire!
