Summer readers! CANNED AND CRUSHED by Bibi Belford is now available on paperback and Kindle/eBook! Bibi Belford’s next book for middle grade readers soon to hit stores and shelves: CROSSING THE LINE
It’s set in Bridgeport, Chicago in 1919, and told through the eyes of eleven-year-old Billy McDermott.
Billy is pretty sure skin color doesn’t matter. Not when you and Foster, your fifth grade buddy and his brothers, Odelle and Emmett, are just horsing around, building a raft.
But in the Red Summer of 1919, it does matter, and Billy’s misguided innocence causes Odelle’s murder, igniting Chicago’s bloodiest race riot.”
—Bibi Belford, Author of Crossing the Line, Canned and Crushed, and other middle grade fiction.
