Novel in verse, quick read, very deep, love the wide cast of characters.
Brief Synopsis: Follows several characters as they deal with the Ku Klux Klan growing more powerful in Vermont.
Why I liked it: Each poem reveals something of the plot, but also reveals important details or developments in the characters. The words are powerful. There is symbolism in abundance. And a nice hopeful, happy ending to leave you feeling like maybe the world isn’t such a bad place.
If you liked Out of the Dust, this book is a must-read.
