Seeing Red

Life will never be the same for Red Porter. He's a kid growing up around black car grease, white fence paint, and the backward attitudes of the folks who live in his hometown: Stony Gap, Virginia. And when Red's daddy dies, he's left with his younger brother, his mama, and some hard decisions. With their money dwindling, Red does everything he can to keep the family business - a gas station, repair shop and convenience store - afloat. But when he uncovers some of the racial injustices that have been happening in Stony Gap since before he was born, Red is faced with unsettling questions about the legacy behind his family's shop, and everything he's fighting for...And through his friendships with some unlikely characters, Red starts to see there's a whole lot more than car motors and rusty fenders that need fixing in his world. This is a new title from American National Book Award-winning author, Kathy Erskine (Mockingbird). This is a thought-provoking historical fiction tackling the important themes of race and responsibility in 70s America, but with elements that resonate on a wider scale. It has strong appeal for book clubs.
