A Mississippi town in 1964 gets riled when tempers flare at
the segregated public pool.
As much as Gloriana June Hemphill, or Glory as everyone
knows her, wants to turn twelve, there are times when Glory
wishes she could turn back the clock a year. Jesslyn, her
sister and former confidante, no longer has the time of day
for her now that sheâ€™ll be entering high school. Then
thereâ€™s her best friend, Frankie. Things have always been so
easy with Frankie, and now suddenly they arenâ€™t. Maybe itâ€™s
the new girl from the North thatâ€™s got everyone out of
sorts. Or maybe itâ€™s the debate about whether or not the
town should keep the segregated public pool open.
Augusta Scattergood has drawn on real-life events to create
a memorable novel about family, friendship, and choices that
arenâ€™t always easy.
