Powerful fiction by National Book Award-winning author Han Nolan. Its 1963, and fourteen-year-old Esther Young has struck up a friendship with a black teen accused of murdering a white man in Alabama. King-Roy Johnson shows up on Esthers doorstep that summer feeling betrayed by the nonviolent teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. Sent north by his mother to escape a lynch mob, he meets a follower of Malcolm Xs who uses radical teachings about black revolution to fuel King-Roys anger and frustration. But with each others help, both Esther and King-Roy learn the true nature of integrity and find the power to stand up for what is right.
