Rachel M | 3 comments No, but thanks. I read it in the 80's and I think it was old back then.

Tab (tabbrown) | 4967 comments Was this book for teens or adults?
Was it a coming-of-age, mystery, horror, etc?
Did the story deal with racism and segregation?
Did this take place in a US state, if so, which one?

Anything about the cover?
Anything about the other characters (boss, family, friends, etc)?

Rachel M | 3 comments For teens. Probably coming of age, possibly had romance, but I cannot remember. Took place in the South. I think the main character was white, but I can't remember if race was an issue as much as just relationships and the tension of being away from home and a first job, which was hard physical work. I feel like there might have been tension with a boss or manager and maybe with other characters. I feel like she rode a bus either to the camp, or maybe to the fields every day, or both. Thanks for your questions.
