In Bumblebee, North Carolina, segregation is alive and well in 1932. One night, Stella and her brother hear a noise across the lake and see men in robes gathered around a burning cross. Their community has long lived with the indignities and insults of segregation. When Stella and Jojo alert their parents, their community gathers together to figure out what to do next. Based loosely on her family's history, Draper's prose immerses the reader in the story. We're not reading about Stella, we are Stella. She has given her family, and all readers a great gift. For grades 4 and up. --Cathy
