When fourteen-year-old Francie befriends Ruthie, a black girl, amidst the rampant prejudice of their small town in 1960s Alabama, Francie suffers greatly from the gruesome harassment of her white peers. But Ruthie demonstrates the humanity and love that helps Francie uncover the truth behind her mother's death and deal with her father's neglect and alcoholism.
