Debut novelist Lisa Lewis Tyre vibrantly brings a small town and its outspoken characters to life, as she explores race and other community issues from both the Civil War and the present day. Lou might be only twelve, but shea€™s never been one to take things sitting down. So when her Civil War-era house is about to be condemned, shea€™s determined to save ita€”either by getting it deemed a historic landmark or by finding the stash of gold rumored to be hidden nearby during the war. As Lou digs into the past, her eyes are opened when she finds that her ancestors ran the gamut of slave owners, renegades, thieves and abolitionists. Meanwhile, some incidents in her town show her that many Civil War era prejudices still survive and that the past can keep repeating itself if we let it. Digging into her past shows Lou that ita€™s never too late to fight injustice, and she starts to see the real value of understanding and exploring her roots.a€œI doubt it, a€ Benzer answered. a€œIa#39;m helping Loua#39;s dad over the weekend.a€ Sally pouted. a€œOh, thata#39;s too bad. I guess youa#39;re going to have another boring summer. What did you write last year for your a#39;My Summer Vacationa#39; essay?a€ She laughed.
