1959: a novel
In the summer of 1959, 12-year-old Willie Tarrant's father and other adults are worried about integration in Turner, Virginia--how it will affect their children's safety and education. For Willie, it will be just another problem to deal with--like her chores. Willie and her friends are to be sent with the first wave--but then eight college students go into the Woolworth's lunch counter and change everything.
