This book is about two best friends who can’t be together because of intergration. It is humorous at times, sad at others but is a really, really good book. It is a great example of how life isn’t always fair. The main charactors are Frannie and Celeste who live in a strictly racist town called Quiver. It takes place in the early 1960s and is a really good read for anyone who likes the best-selling novel “The Color of Friendship”and “The Skin I’m In”.
