Note: 
In a small Southern town during the 1950's, Audrey Ina's father puts his family's livelihood and safety at risk by championing the cause of a man who wants to become the town's first black policeman. The author captures the ambivalent situation of Southern Jews during the Civil Rights era and writes with insight of an young person's awakening to the existence of evil in her world. A rich and meaningful work, this won the Sydney Taylor Book Award for Older Readers.
