Jackson

This is a great read. I started reading the book thinking it was going to be about a mother being taking out of the Jackson mental hospital in Louisiana. She was indeed taken from the hospital and had some major mental problems but the book was about a mother and her daughters in Jackson, Mississippi during the school desegregation.

Jody Luther is a 15 years old. She is in high school, has a job, takes care of her younger sister and deals with her mentally ill mother. If that is not enough it was happening during the civil rights movement in 1970.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
