Read in September, 2010

I read this book because it had been reviewed as a book similar to "The Help". The story is told through the eyes of a 14 year old white girl who moves to Jackson, MS with her mother after her father dies in Vietnam. Her year in Jackson and her maturity are complicated by the intense segregation in Jackson MS, her attraction to a boy from a "good family", and her mother and her friend's interest and involvement in the civil rights movement. Along the way, she becomes interested in photography and learns another way to see the world, with all of its pain and beauty.
