Ruby Lee and Me by Shannon Hitchcock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Growing up can be tough, but it’s even tougher when you feel responsible for a terrible accident and are at odds with your best friend because in a moment of rage you called her something really terrible. Tensions are thick in this small North Carolina town as Sarah Beth and her best friend Ruby Lee navigate what it means to forgive, all while people are talking about the first African American teacher that is coming to the school. With a rich setting and lovable characters, this book is a heart-warmer. With mad-love for both this book and Shannon Hitchcock’s, The Ballad of Jessie Pearl, I cannot wait to see what she writes next.
