The fabric of The $66 Summer, by John Armistad (ages 10-14), is woven with strands of prejudice, courage and compassion. Twelve-year-old George has hopes and dreams for the summer. He becomes fatefully entwined with Esther, an African-American girl who works for his grandmother, and her wish to find her missing father. This period piece, set in 1955 Alabama, is rife with mystery, racism and murder. Readers who enjoyed Watsons Go to Birmingham, 1963 will find this story compelling.
