Yankee Girl, Paperback / softback Book

Yankee Girl Paperback / softback

Part of the Usborne Modern Classics series


It's 1964 and Alice has moved to Mississippi from Chicago with her family.

Nicknamed `Yankee Girl' and taunted by the in-crowd at school, Alice soon discovers the other new girl Valerie - one of the school's first black students - has it much worse. Alice can't stand the way Valerie is treated, and yet she knows she will remain an outsider if she speaks up.

It takes a horrible tragedy to finally give Alice the courage to stand up for what she believes. Set in the Deep South in the 1960s, Yankee Girl is a powerful, resonant and relevant story about racism and doing the right thing.
