Publisher's summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Nic Stone comes a timely middle-grade road-trip story through landmarks of the Civil Rights movement and the map they lay for contemporary race relations.

How to go on an unplanned road trip with your grandma:

  • Grab a suitcase: prepacked from the big spring break trip that got cancelled.
  • Fasten your seatbelt: G'ma's never conventional, so this trip won't be either.
  • Use the green book: G'ma's most treasured possession. It holds history, memories, and most important, the way home.

What not to bring:

  • A cell phone: Avoid contact with Dad at all costs. Even when G'ma starts acting stranger than usual.

Set against the backdrop of the segregation history of the American South, take a trip with this New York Times best seller and an 11-year-old boy who is about to discover that the world hasn't always been a welcoming place for kids like him, and things aren't always what they seem - his G'ma included.

"Truly a delight." (Christopher Paul Curtis, author of Newbery Medal winner Bud, Not Buddy)
