Some nights make you question if there really is a God in heaven. I hung my head, feeling more hopeless than I ever had before, but then Mrs. Smyre's voice rang out. She sang the words to "We Shall Overcome."

"Ruby Lee turned around and put the stink eye on me, but she didn't say any more. We'd been friends since we were babies, but it only took five minutes to blow that friendship to smithereens. Some words are like a stick of dynamite." -Sarah Beth Willis

It was a perfectly ordinary day, until it wasn't.

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.
