A stunning repackage of a companion to Mildred D. Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, with cover art by two-time Caldecott Honor Award winner Kadir Nelson! As America hovers on the brink of war, seventeen-year-old Cassie Logan fights a battle closer to home. She dreams of college and law school.

But no amount of schooling can prepare her for the violent explosion that takes place when her friend Moe lashes out at his white tormentors–an action unheard of in Mississippi as the country prepares for World War II.

Moe will be in even greater danger if he stays in town, so it is up to Cassie, her brother, and their friends to accompany Moe on the road to Memphis–and to safety. “Cassie recounts harrowing events during late 1941. An engrossing picture of fine young people endeavoring to find the right way in a world that persistently wrongs them.”–Kirkus Reviews “An enlightening, moving novel.”–Publishers Weekly
