Description-

  • When the Ku Klux Klan makes an unwelcome reappearance in Stella’s segregated southern town, bravery battles prejudice in this Depression-era tour de force from Sharon Draper, the New York Times bestselling author of Out of My Mind.
    Stella lives in the segregated South—in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can’t. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn’t bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they’re never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella’s community—her world—is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don’t necessarily signify an end.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Peering through brush in the starlight, Stella and her brother see hooded Klan figures burning a cross. They race home to bring the unwelcome news to their tightly knit North Carolina community, circa 1930. With an active KKK in town, the African-American residents are in danger. Narrator Heather Alicia Simms creates convincing character voices for Bumblebee's many residents who are struggling to overcome the segregated status quo--as well as for those who are working to preserve it. Stella struggles as a writer, trying to express her thoughts, a process that the listener hears as she writes and rewrites school assignments. Simms has a lovely voice for singing the hymns woven throughout the fabric of Stella's community, but her often cheerful narrative tone sometimes belies the gravity of Stella's story.
