An unforgettable Logan family story.
'If I had my way I would put an iron padlock on time so nothing would ever have to change again.'
Cassie Logan is growing up and beginning to experience life beyond the safe and lovong circle of her family. When an all-white jury finds young T.J. guilty of murder, and an innocent friendship is forbidden, Cassie learns what it really means to be black and powerless.
Set in 1935 in Mississippi, this moving story of courage and pride is vividly portrayed by award-winning author, Mildred D. Taylor.
