Kim Johnson's ability to weave real historical events into her fictional story is unlike any other. The Color of a Lie is an exceptionally powerful read; one I could not put down. Reading about the injustices Black people faced in the 1950's and continue to face to this day is emotional and rage inducing. I strongly recommend checking this book out. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
