Publisher's summary

With racial tension dividing a small Mississippi town, what happens when one by one, white residents awaken to find themselves with skin pigmentation as dark as those they despise?

In the small town of St. Molasses, Mississippi, the town was so small, there was only one library, one school, one pharmacy, and only one major grocery store. If one wished to visit a museum, shopping mall, night club, or movie theater, they’d have to travel a couple miles over to the city of Marmalade to do so. Like most small rural towns, everybody knew everybody. Depending on what you were up to, that could either be a good thing or a bad thing. They knew whose little boy or little girl every child belonged to, whether he was white or colored. Which would explain why Freddie, a black visitor, had been receiving odd looks ever since his Plymouth Fury had overheated right in front of the city sign of St. Molasses. Little did the racially charged town know what was in store for them.

The beloved siblings Rosa and Frederick, from the Negus series, make an appearance in this sci-fi tale.
