Summary
"A memorable and lovely debut."-- ? A poignant middle grade debut about the friendship between a white girl and an elderly black woman in the 1960s South? Alice is angry at having to move to Rainbow, Georgia?a too small, too hot, dried-up place she?s sure will never feel like home. Then she gets put in charge of walking her elderly neighbor?s dog. But Clarence won?t budge without Miss Millie, so Alice and Miss Millie walk him together. Strolling?with Clarence and Miss Millie quickly becomes the highlight of Alice's day and opens her eyes to all sorts of new things to marvel over. During their walks, they?meet a mix of people, and Alice sees that although there are some bullies and phonies, there are plenty of kind folks, too. Miss Millie shares her family?s story with Alice, showing her the painful impact segregation has had on their town. And with Miss Millie, Alice is finally able to express her own heartache over why her family had to move there in the first place. Tamara Bundy?s beautifully written debut celebrates the wonder and power of friendship: how it can be found when we least expect it and make any place a home
Summary
