Publisher's Summary

Another powerful story in the Logan Family Saga and companion to Mildred D. Taylor's Newbery Award-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. A drive South becomes dangerous for 'Lois and her family.

'Lois and Wilma are proud of their father's brand-new gold Cadillac and excited that the family will be driving it all the way from Ohio to Mississippi. But as they travel deeper into the rural South, there are no admiring glances for the shiny new car; only suspicion and anger for the black man behind the wheel. For the first time in their lives, Lois and her sister know what it's like to feel scared because of the color of their skin.

"A personal, poignant look at a black child's first experience with institutional racism." (The New York Times)

How is this part of the Logan Family Saga?

This was a nice story but it had nothing to do with the Logan family. It was mentioned that there was family in Mississippi, but doesn't say who. The main characters have never been mentioned in any of the other stories. None of the Logan's we are familiar with like Cassie, Stacy, Little man,Christopher John, Uncle Hammer etc. are mentioned. Not even extended family Cousin Jasper or friends, Moe Turner, cousin Suezella who may have been up north were mentioned. There is no connection. This was a nice short story but not a Logan Family story. I also feel it's not worth the price or even the use of a free credit. If you love the Logan family series like I do, and you just want to read this story, I suggest checking it out at a library or borrowing it from someone whose purchased this already. I hate that I have to write this, but it is was it is. It's not a Logan family story.
