When the Ficketts decide to adopt Edgar Allan, they are sure they are doing a good thing--or so Reverend and Mrs. Fickett think. They don't see the small boy as a ticking time bomb. But he is--because he is black, they are white, and their neighbors are determined to stop them. 12-year-old Michael Fickett is a witness to the town's racism...and his life is changed forever.
