“I ain’t never heard of no sickness that makes you kill little girls just because you don’t want them in your school. I don’t think they’re sick at all, I think they just let hate eat them up and turn them into monsters.”
Ten-year-old Kenny chronicles the events of a fateful summer for the Watson family of Flint, as they pile in the family car and head south – toward a horrific moment in American history. Based on the Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honor Book by Flint native, Christopher Paul Curtis.
