The book the girl who stopped swimming

The girl who stopped swimming by Joshilyn Jackson. This is the first book I have read by the author and it is good. You will be hooked from the beginning . The story has good character development,and a modern day Gothic mystery story line. Perfect summer reading material. Live does not get much better than sitting on your porch or if we are lucky at the beach with a good book and a nice cold drink.

The book Coming Of Age In Mississippi

Coming Of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody.

A well-written powerful autobiography of her experiences growing up poor and black in the south . Anne eventually becomes involved in the civil rights movement and we get to understand what it was like for her and other foot soldiers of the movement who risked their lives on a daily basis to help bring social and political changes to the country. I highly recommend this book .
