The Best Bad Luck I Ever Hadby Kristin Levine
Synopses & Reviews
The last thing Harry ÒDitÓ Sims expects when Emma Walker comes to town is to become friends. Propertalking, brainy Emma doesnÕt play baseball or fish too well, but she sure makes Dit think, especially about the differences between black and white in the 1910s. But soon Dit is thinking about a whole lot more when the town barber, who is black, is put on trial for a terrible crime. Together Dit and Emma come up with a daring plan to save him from the unthinkable.
Set in 1917 and inspired the by the author's true family history, this novel tells the poignant story of an unexpected friendship between a white farm boy and an African-American city girl--and the ripples it sends through a rural Alabama town.
