Summary (From the publisher):

Quiver, Oklahoma is a pretty town with an ugly secret.

It’s the early 1960s and Frannie has never given much thought to the color of her skin—until an African-American girl named Celeste moves to town. Celeste’s father breaks all of Quiver’s unofficial rules. He buys a house in the white part of town and sends Celeste to Frannie’s all-white school. At first Frannie treats Celeste just like everyone else—she ignores her. But when the two girls are chosen to be in a special vocal ensemble, they find themselves becoming friends. However, Frannie soon realizes that others in town are not so quick to accept the idea of racial integration. Will a dark secret that Frannie discovers about Quiver’s past threaten the future of her friendship with Celeste?
