Yankee Girl by Mary Ann Rodman
Book DescriptionAn unflinching and heartfelt story about racism and finding the strength to stand up for what's right. Set in the Deep South in the 1960s, Yankee Girl still has strong resonances today. Synopsis It's 1964 and Alice Anne Moxley has moved to Mississippi from Chicago with her family. The 'Yankee Girl' is taunted by the other girls at school, although she soon discovers the other new girl - the school's first black student - suffers much worse. Alice is disturbed by what goes on, but knows she will remain an outsider if she defends Valerie. It takes a tragedy for her to realise what is really important and find the courage to act.

Author Biography - Mary Ann Rodman
Mary Ann Rodman was inspired to write Yankee Girl, her first novel, after leaving her job as a librarian and moving to Thailand. The experience of dealing with a completely different culture reminded her of her childhood years spent in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960s. Mary Ann moved to Mississippi during the height of the civil rights movement when her father, an FBI agent, was sent to work there. Mary Ann now lives in Alpharetta, Georgia.
