This is a YALSA (Best Fiction for Young Adults) winner for 2011. It is a very good story of a young teen and her mom, living in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963. Samantha learns about the power of photography, and the importance of standing up for what you believe. Sam sees the unjust treatment of the Black people in Jackson, and becomes an eyewitness to the beginning of voter registration and the Civil Rights movement. Along with a love interest, this is an eye-opening story for young people, with a message of courage and compassion thrown in for good measure.
