Why do I have it? I like historical fiction and Katharine A. Russell is a new author for me.

Agnes Hayden Bashford - Haddie - is struggling with many things is the 1962 town of Wicomico Corners; entering high school, her budding crush on her best friend, Gideon, and waitressing at church suppers. She has big plans to escape Wicomico Corners and make something of herself in the wide world. Then, she witnesses the murder of a black teenager and the resulting court case exposes the racial tensions that Haddie couldn't even begin to contemplate could exist in her tiny town.

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were very well written and the setting was believeable for the time period. I give this story an A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

May you read well and often
