A compelling dual-narrated tale from Jennifer Latham that questions how far we've come with race relations. Some bodies won't stay buried. Some stories need to be told. When seventeen-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family's property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the present and the past. Nearly one hundred years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns. Through intricately interwoven alternating perspectives, Jennifer Latham's lightning-paced page-turner brings the Tulsa race riot of 1921 to blazing life and raises important questions about the complex state of US race relations--both yesterday and today.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Jennifer LathamPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 02/20/2018ISBN: 9780316384902Pages: 400Weight: 0.75lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.50w x 1.10dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 189089 / Dreamland BurningReading Level: 5.9 / Interest Level: Middle Grade Plus / Point Value: 13
