Grace Callaway lives down deep in Alabama during a turbulent time of protests, boycotts, and sit-ins. It is a segregated world where black and white won’t mix. But don’t tell that to Ida Bell and Grace. They love each other like a real mother and daughter. But the summer Grace turns ten, her white momma decides they need to move away. Moving means just one thing: leaving Ida Bell. Grace knows she cannot go. She knows she cannot let go. How can she leave the person who raised her?
