Teenage Book of the Month

How High The Moon by Karyn Parsons

It’s 1944, and in a small Southern town in the USA, eleven-year-old Ella spends her days running wild with her cousins and friends. But life isn’t always so sunny. The deep racial tension that divides their town never goes away, and Ella misses her mama – a beautiful jazz singer, who lives in Boston. So when she gets an invitation to visit, Ella is ecstatic – and the trip turns out to be life-changing. For the first time, Ella sees what life outside of racial segregation is like, and she begins to dream of a very different future. But her hopes are shattered when she returns home to the news that her classmate George has been accused of murdering two white girls – and nothing will ever be the same again.
