Whistling Past the Graveyard
Starla was a feisty young southern girl that had a lot of learning and a lot of growing up to do. I found myself rooting for her throughout her journey. I fought with her when she was being attacked and I cried with her when she realized the truth about her momma.
It was a well written, easy to fall in love with book and I've recommended it to many friends and family members already. The stark reality of segregation grabbed a hold of little Starla and she was forever changed.
