Being black at a white school isn't easy, and Brewster winds up spending his first day in detention at the library. But there he meets a very special person: Miss O'Grady. The librarian sees into Brewster's heart and gives him not only the gift of books but also the ability to believe in himself.
This powerful and tender story of desegregation in the 1970s introduces readers to the brave young heroes who helped to build a new world.
