Book Review: One Mississippi



One Mississippi by Mark Childress

This was highly recommended to me by several fellow library folk, and what an amazingly well-written book, set in the early 1970s of Mississippi when race and fitting in where still a daily conflict.

Daniel has recently relocated to Mississippi and quickly finds a new best friend, but on prom night a tragic accident takes its toll on Daniel, their friendship, and the lives of those that surround them.

This is a page turner of a book, and the end was completely unexpected for me. A tremendous study of a different era - recommended!
