Product Description

You know it already: being the new kid at school isn’t easy. But being the first black kid at an all-white school in 1960s Mississippi is a million times worse. Everyone’s got it in for Valerie, the black girl. Everyone except new arrival Alice, the ‘Yankee Girl’. She’s also an outsider, taunted by the in-crowd. She can’t stand the way Valerie is picked on. But should Alice step in – or will she watch from the sidelines? Can Alice find the courage to stand up for what’s right?

  • A powerful modern classic exploring racism, friendship and courage
  • Vividly describes life in America’s Deep South during the 1960s
  • Based on the author’s own experiences of growing up in Mississippi
  • Chosen as a VOYA Top Shelf Title for Middle School Readers
