Snow Hill, Alabama 1937 sets the stage for conveying important complexities Brother, a privileged white boy experiences when befriending Champion Always Luckey, a black boy from Detroit. While the plot isn't necessarily compelling, the power of healing a racial divide is as portrayed here. An excellent springboard for timelining events of that period.
Publisher Summary
In 1937 Alabama, eleven-year-old Brother helps with his mother's boardinghouse, gains insight into prejudice when he befriends the nephew of the family's maid, and dreams of riding a train one day with the railroadmen who serve as his substitute fathers.
