Having Southern roots and loving stories that are set in the South, I was anxious to read Blue Hole Back Home by Joy Jordan-Lake, which is based on a true story.

Though Pisgah Ridge, North Carolina is fictional just like the characters, it was easy to envision such a town while reading this story. It was easy to get lost in this book and feel like I was right there, as the events were happening.

The author shares a haunting, heart wrenching story of a friendship ripped apart by racism, which is based on actual events that took place during her teenage years.

I had a lump in my throat while reading about Farsanna, the young girl from Sri Lanka who finds herself the center of controversy and prejudice and the small group of friends who fiercely try to protect her.
