Some bodies won't stay buried.
Some stories need to be told.
When 17-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family's property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the present and the past.
Nearly 100 years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels 17-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self-discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns.
Through intricately interwoven alternating perspectives, Jennifer Latham's lightning pace brings the Tulsa race riot of 1921 to blazing life and raises important questions about the complex state of US race relations - both yesterday and today.

Best fictional account of the Tulsa Race Riot
Although this is YA fiction, I would consider using this book in my college courses over the events of the 1921 race riot in Tulsa. Latham's research is excellent, her characters heartwarming, and her writing worthy to honor the tragic events. The story is relevant today and ties to current news headlines.
