Publisher's Summary

Three-time Golden Globe nominated actress Denise Nicholas has won great acclaim for her debut novel. Spreadout beside Celeste on the train is a paper entitled How to Stay Alive in Mississippi. A young, privileged black woman from Detroit, Celeste has begun to realize she knows as little about her race as her white ex-boyfriend. So she heads to the South “to shore up her own Negro-ness” by volunteering during the Freedom Summer.

not a fan

not very intellectually stimulating. I found myself not enjoying many portions of it because it didnt really have that "classic novel" feel that Ive been accustomed to. some people may enjoy it, but it's not really for me
