ABOUT THE BOOK:
The time was 1968. The place was
. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Sen. Bobby Kennedy had been assassinated. War was raging in Montgomery, Alabama Vietnam. And war was raging on the playground of the all-white . Wyatt Elementary School
Schoolyard bullies teased sixth grader Lisa Parker because of the way her nose looked. Lisa would often develop a stomachache and check out of school to escape the bullies. Until sixth grade teacher Miss Annie Loomis came to Wyatt. Miss Loomis just happened to be the first African American at Wyatt, and Lisa loved her English class. Now, when the bullies teased Lisa, she would stay in school so that she could be in Miss Loomis’ class. Yet something terrible happened that would change Lisa and Miss Loomis forever.
Racism reared its ugly head at Wyatt, and now Lisa was not the only victim of the bullies’ teasing. Would Miss Loomis endure the bullies’ racist taunts?
