BeschreibungA compelling tale of racial inequality in a small New England town. When a racially mixed family moves into an all-white neighborhood in East Hartford, Connecticut, in 1961, lives are altered forever. Karl Luntta's Know It by Heart follows the adventures of young Dub Teed, his sister Susan and neighbor Doug Hammer, who befriend newly arrived Ricky Dubois, the daughter of an African-American woman and her white husband, When burning crosses appear at night--and worse--the young adolescents set out to find justice and discover themselves in the process. Despite the book's serious anti-racist theme, Know It by Heart is fille with humor reminiscent of Mark Twain.
