Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sylvia is shocked and confused when she is asked to be one of the first black students to attend Central High School, which is scheduled to be integrated in the fall of 1957, whether people like it or not. Before Sylvia makes her final decision, smoldering racial tension in the town ignites into flame. When the smoke clears, she sees clearly that nothing is going to stop the change from coming. It is up to her generation to make it happen, in as many different ways as there are colors in the world.

Synopsis:

In an emotional tale about integrity, justice, and determination ("KLATT"), Draper delivers a gripping novel about the integration of schools in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957. Original.
