really liked it

I found this book pretty much interesting because it had to do with racism. While growing up, Josephine is known as the preachers daughter in Indiana. They moved recently and was struggling with fitting in with others. She meets an innocent boy named Lucas who's the maid's son. They get to know each other little by little , but kids from school started seeing her with him. People around her started to make fun of her just because she's hanging out with colored people. Her behavior started to change through out the book.One day her father brings it up during dinner and notifies her of a few things such as her behavior. Her mother talked about how she was teased as a little girl but once people got to know each other they will accept her for who she was and not for what skin color, where you come from, or how you look. She learned her lesson and so will everyone else with Josephine.
