About the Book

The story takes place in Sanson, Mississippi a fictitious town that has escaped the tumultuous events of the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War by burying its head in the sand like an ostrich. In Sanson, people in the Southside don’t mix with those on the Northside, except for two kids Elizabeth, who is black, and Joseph, who is white. Elizabeth and Joseph learn about race, religion and life from each other. When the unthinkable happens to Elizabeth, Joseph must defend himself while trying to find the horrible person who savagely raped her.
