    A troubling book without easy answers but I'm not sure of its audience andor whether it's hitting that audience I feel like the best reader would be older than the eleven year old protagonist In particular I'm not sure how many kids would understand the implication or facts about who Moses's grandfather is and what that means I was

Lent plot against the government to maintain the status uoOne generation away from slavery a thriving African American community enfranchised and emancipated suddenly and violently loses its freedom in turn of the century North Carolina when a group of local politicians stages the only successful coup d'etat in US histor Highly flawed the author wanted to provide the reader with a historical fiction account of the events leading up to and during the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898 Her choice to present the account in the first person perspective of a 12 year old boy forced her to explain him into situations The way he just happened to be there became extremely tedious and unbelievable as the story wore on Eye roll inducing The voice of the main character was terribly inauthentic throughout a 12 year old publicly educated black boy in 1898 North Carolina would never say the dress had a single skirt with a continuous line of ruffles around the bottom ending halfway down the calf shorter than what was considered modest for any but the youngest girls or it held the monstrous hydraulic machine that smashed the loose bales of cotton from the gin into denser blocks to be loaded onto foreign bound vessels For the amount of description needed to describe the setting a first person narrative just does not workUntil the race riot situation comes to a head the book feels like unconnected collection of stories some characters and conflicts are introduced and then never mentioned again or details already described are repeated in another section Redeeming ualities some of the scenes and dialogue do a fine job of portraying the scary antics of the white supremacist red shirts in 1898 something that children may have a hard time imagining today The relationship between Moses and his father was well done with some great dialogue about being a stand up man
