This heartfelt novel of the Civil Rights struggle in the small town of Bainbridge, Alabama, in the 1960s turns listeners' expectations upside down and inside out. Narrator Katie Firth expertly navigates this story of teenaged girls politicized into action against racial segregation. One of the most colorful, evocative, and tension-filled scenes takes place at a Nashville lunch counter, where conflict comes simply from sitting at a counter and ordering a hot dog. Firth underplays the accents and helps listeners clearly identify each of the varied personalities. A tragic ending will long be remembered.
