Summary :

From the author
Set in the hot Texas summers of 1958 and 1959, the novel tells the story of one thirteen year old girl’s coming of age in a time of deep racial divisions. Sally Jarman is spending her summer vacation with her grandparents when she discovers that her grandfather is a member of the KKK. As the heat rises, tempers flare in the small, segregated town of Mossville, Texas. Defying her grandfather’s orders and determined to understand the hatred that has poisoned his heart, Sally befriends a young black girl, Zora Mae, and a group of intriguing drifters who live in a derelict train depot. With their help, Sally decides to stand up to injustice and organize an interracial event that could change everything for the town. When her grandfather discovers her plans, violence ensues. Will Sally and her friends be able to bring peace and hope to the town, despite the bigotry of many of the town’s white residents?
