She is compelled to take sides after the school is integratedan overnight event for which the towns residents are unprepared, and which leads to confusion and anxiety in the communityand her values are tested as she seeks to understand her black colleagues, particularly Evelyn. Why doesnt she want to integrate the public schools? Frank, meanwhile, is determined to protect his mother and siblings after his fathers suspicious deathwhich means keeping a secret from everyone around him.Based on the authors experience teaching in Louisiana in the late sixties, this heartfelt, unflinching novel about the unexpected effects of school integration during that time takes on the issues our nation currently faces regarding race, unity, and identity.
