This book is very touching. At first glance it isn't very appealing, but once you start reading, it captures your heart. 11 year old Stella, (the protagonist), is dealing with her everyday life when a neighbor's house gets burned down by a racist group. Then her life takes on new twists and turns as she has to face her and her community's race as her life changes. I love this book! I could not put it down! I think that Sharon .M Draper has weaved a heartwarming and touching story that will capture the hearts of readers.
