A NovelBook - 2011
Michelle LeBeau, the child of a white American father and a Japanese mother, lives with her grandparents in Deerfield, Wisconsin - a small town that had been entirely white before her arrival. Rejected and bullied, Michelle spends her time reading, avoiding fights and roaming the countryside with her dog, Brett. In the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird (Arrow, 2010), Revoyr's new novel examines the effects of change on a small, isolated town, the strengths and limits of a community and the sometimes conflicting loyalties of family and justice.
