Book Cover


In 1953, the lone Jewish girl in a small Mississippi town publicly challenges segregation while privately challenging the limits of her own personal courage.

Read over her shoulder as 10-year-old all time worrier and honest-to-goodness writer Essie Rose Ginsberg chronicles a summer spent learning about friendship, love, loyalty, and “getting about her business.”

“An absolute delight. I laughed. I cried. I loved it.”

“A wonderful book…my congratulations on its publishing.”
–Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director, ADL
