Dear Librarians,

Few novels capture the 1950s Civil Rights Era from the perspective of a white child.  

At nine, Orbie seems to live his life along a precipice. He is burdened with an overabundance of difficult choices which would be beyond the capacities of most boys his age — but Orbie is about to discover that he's no ordinary boy; that nothing is ever precisely what it seems. Prejudice is not innate. The dead aren't really dead. And those in power cannot be trusted.

"Reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird..." —Kindle Nation

"A psychologically astute...and satisfying novel." —Kirkus Starred Review
