Cassie Logan and her brothers have been warned never to go to the Wallace store, so they know to expect trouble there. What they don t expect is to hear Mr. Tom Bee, an elderly black man, daring to call the white storekeeper by his first name. The year is 1933, the place is Mississippi, and any child knows that some things just aren t done.
A powerful story. Readers will be haunted by its drama and emotion long after they have closed the book.Booklist
