Publisher's Summary

Jessie lives with her family in the frontier village of Clifton, Indiana. When diphtheria strikes the village and the children of Clifton start dying, Jessie's mother sends her on a dangerous mission to bring back help. But beyond the walls of Clifton, Jessie discovers a world even more alien and threatening than she could have imagined, and soon she finds her own life in jeopardy. Can she get help before the children of Clifton, and Jessie herself, run out of time?

    Story
    "Racial issues"

    I did not appreciate the way the black people in the story were referred to as " negros . It also says that she was taught that black people could or would never be as smart as white people. Last but not least, it says, Jessie was disappointed when she saw that the black women were not dark skin with curly hair. The racial stereotypes are not acceptable or appropriate. They also were not appreciated - at all.
