From the author of THE JOURNEY OF RUTHIE BELLE comes a short story about a question posed often, God Are You There?
CHARMAINE LEE BASTON is a witty fourteen-year-old African American girl from a small town, Sunnybrook, Alabama. It's the early 1920s, the height of Jim Crow, and the peak of the Great Migration. But Baston shows her curious intellect by observing racism and misogyny firsthand and won't hold back on her feelings unless her sister has anything to say about it.
CAROL BASTON is demure and reserve to keep her comments to herself. However, as different as they are, Carol may face a losing battle against the future bestselling author. Charmaine Lee has too much of MABEL LEE BASTON, their mother in her.
In the end, one person's opinion will matter, and another will learn that old Southern saying, hardheads make a soft behind.
