    When young Armstrong Todd's mother sends him to spend the summer in her native rural Mississippi, the Chicago-bred 15-year-old is unused to the segregated ways of the Deep South. So when the black youth utters a few innocuous words in French to a white woman, he has no idea of the impending firestorm he has ignited. Armstrong ends up paying the ultimate price when the offended woman's husband and his friends decide to teach the youth a lesson.

    Overall

    Not much more to say than the title.

    But the sound quality for the book almost makes it impossible to follow. if you turn up the volume the background noise/other people talking is unbearable. Turn the volume down and you can barely hear her voice. Now I might sound a little dramatic, but as far I remember it was the worst audio books iv'e listened to. And thats saying something cause I hate reading school assigned books, so I go the lazy way and listen. Anyway, if I had a choice to do it again, I wouldn't. But if you're like me and absolutely hate reading force read books. I'd pay the extra money and get a CD, most of the time those are good quality. Anytime you download a Audio file from the internet you take a risk for the quality.

    Audible, is not necessarily responsible for the poor sound quality of the book, so i'm not berating Audible.com, (as a matter of fact everything went very smoothly with the transaction and so forth), that would be like saying Wal-Mart is a bad grocery store because you didn't like the taste of one of their products.

    Now the book its self is amazing. I just swallowed the pain of reading, and read the book, very great book. At times I couldn't put it down.

    Turns out I said a lot more than the title. Hope this review helps
