The year is 1945 and May Boggs, the Fifties Chix social studies teacher, is 15 years old. World War II has taken its toll and May and her two best friends, Rowena and Emily, are happy to see the war coming to an end at long last. But their bright futures are disrupted by a trip back to another war-torn era: the Civil War. When, in modern day, Maxine pays the price for the controversial essay she wrote for the school's underground paper, the secret her teacher uncovers in 1865 may be the very thing that saves the reputation and future of Maxine and the Fifties Chix. Jump in and join the time-traveling adventures of three generations of friends who fight for freedom, friendship and their special place in the world in this third book of the Fifties Chix series.
