    Book Description:
    Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the passengers board the weekly bus from Jackson. When several white passengers arrive late, the driver roughly orders the black passengers off to make room. Then, in the driving rain, disaster strikes, and Jeremy witnesses a shocking end to the day’s drama. Set in Mississippi in the 1930s, this is a gripping story of racial injustice."Taylor, a powerful storyteller, again combines authentic incidents to create a taut plot…Her cry for justice always rings true." —Kirkus Reviews
