Steph (loves water) | 109 comments All I can remember is a young girl (not sure if she's white or black) stays for the summer with an aunt (?)who is targeted by the KKK because of her friendship with a black woman. The woman's name was Ginger Drum, and one night the KKK burns a cross in her yard. I read this in the 70s. If anyone can help, it would be appreciated. Excellent book.
