Taylor continues the story of an African-American family in Mississippi, which she began in the Newbery Award winner Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. It's 1941, and Cassie, a high school senior, is dreaming of college and law school. But racial injustice forces Cassie and her brother to put aside their lives and help an old friend escape trouble. Thigpen's deep, rich voice conveys the range of Cassie's feelings, from outspoken boldness to fear, grief and bewilderment. While the story sometimes moves slowly--both the writing and the reading suffer from a lack of dramatic pacing--listeners will be entertained, educated and moved by it.
