In this compelling continuation of the Jefferson family story, thirteen-year-old Emily Rose visits her extended family in Texas for the first time ever. Emily Rose, who grew up in a biracial family in the northeast, is surprised that racial attitudes are so different in the South. But as she grows closer to her great-grandmother, Rose Lee, and learns more about her African American heritage, Emily Rose discovers a new dimension of herself.
Includes a reader's guide.
