Quick to read, this story is filled with friendship, family, and community. The story revolves around Sarah Beth, a sensitive and curious bookworm whose friendship with Ruby Lee is strained when their town begins to change as segregation ends. Rich language, warm characters (grandparents, librarian, teacher) and a firm historical setting make this a strong choice for Black History Month.
