It's 1917 in Moundville, Alabama and Dit Sims is looking forward to making friends with the son of the new town postmaster. Well, that is until the new son turns out to be twelve-year old Emma, a young African American girl. How can he be friends with a girl? Dit is about to learn some important lessons. One of those lessons comes from Doc Haley who tells him 'There is some things in life that are worth making a stink over. But a bottle of hair tonic ain't one of them.' In the midst of their fishing, their window shattering and their caving building, Emma and Dit are going to come up against something that is worth making a stink over. They are going to come face to face with discrimination and injustice. Ages 10-13 272 pages
