Books by Mississippi Writers 1996-2010
By Mildred D. Taylor Puffin (Paperback, $4.99, ISBN: 0141308176, 6/2000) (reprint edition) In Depression-era Mississippi, Jeremy Sims, a ten-year-old white boy, watches as black passengers on a bus are forced to leave to make room for white passengers. He reacts with dismay, but then witnesses an ironic tragedy as the bus spins out of control into the flood-swollen river. Taylor has again underscored a moral dilemma without losing her sure grasp of narrative development. ―Copyright © 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
