Children Ages 10+ • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Burg and Brome take a violent place and time in American history—1960s Mississippi—and create the realistic but joyful story of Addie Ann Pickett. We follow Addie Ann's family during these dark days, when her adored brother disappears due to a misunderstanding and her beloved Uncle Bump is arrested for taking on local racists who are trying to cheat the black community. All of this occurs as the assassinated civil rights worker Medgar Evers is mourned by black America. Narrator Kenya Brome gives Addie Ann a wink in her voice. Brome also perfectly captures Addie Ann's spirited mother and her town’s redneck sheriff. Author Burg begins and ends the book with a chronology of events and injustices occurring even today. This story is perfect for those of all ages. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
