Happy book birthday to WADE IN THE WATER by Nyani Nkrumah.
When a white woman shows up in the very black part of Ricksville Mississippi alarm bells go off and Ella thinks, like the rest of her neighbors that this woman is crazy. Ms. St. James claims to be from Princeton and is writing her thesis on the Civil Rights Movement and wants to get the facts from the people who were part of it. Ella having few friends and at the impressionable age of 11 befriends Ms. St. James but that friendship is not an easy one. A coming of age story of a fatherless and mother couldn't care less little girl searching for her roots and trying to figure out life. It is also a story of how the sins of the father fall on the children who should do better. Historical fiction with a soul for fans of THE VANISHING HALF and stories set in the south during the 60's. 4 stars
