New York: A Yearling Book. Very Good- with no dust jacket. 1997. Trade Paperback. 0440414121 . Trade Paperback, minor edgewear, very clean, tight copy. "Nine-year-old Kenny narrates this story about his middle-class, African-American family and their 1963 trip from Flint, Michigan to Birmingham, Alabama. The trip's purpose is two-fold--to visit their grandmother, and to get Kenny's older brother away from the rough crowd he has been running with. Sadly, racism rears its ugly head as the family travels through the South, eventually culminating in the bombing of Kenny's grandmother's church while his younger sister and many others are inside. " ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 210 pages .
