Publisher's Summary

When the Ku Klux Klan makes an unwelcome reappearance in Stella's segregated southern town, bravery battles prejudice in this Depression-era tour de force from Sharon Draper, the New York Times best-selling author of Out of My Mind.

Stella lives in the segregated South - in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can't. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn't bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they're never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella's community - her world - is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don't necessarily signify an end.

    "Perfect marriage of voice and text"

    The narrator brings the story to life as if it were her own. Felt as if I were listening to storytime after supper. Superb blend of voice and story.

    "I loved reading this book and the audio made it even better!"

    This is an amazing book. I read aloud to my students and they loved. My family listened to it on audio on our vacation.

    "Wonderful book and story!"

    The author and narrator provide us with a clear perspective on how a community can stand up together to withstand racism and injustice with bravery, strength, and determination. As a middle school teacher I highly recommend this book to upper elementary and middle school audiences as the author so skillfully embeds African American culture and history into this wonderful story.

    "Great Story!"

    This book really explains about what it was like back then. I would reccomend this story to anyone who wants to learn more about the differences on how blacks and whites were treated back then.
