THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
Chicago-born Amrstrong Tood is fifteen, black, and unused to the ways of the segregated Deep South, when his mother sends him to spend the summer with relatives in rural Mississippi. For speaking a few innocuous words in French to a white woman, Armstrong is killed. And the precariously balanced world and its determined people--white and black--are changed, then and forever, by the horror of poverty, the legacy of justice, and the singular gift of love's power to heal.

From the Publisher:

I was talking to a well read New York radio personality the other day, and she mentioned that
this book is one of the classics of African American literature. I know that for many Bebe Moore
Campbell fans, this is their favorite of her works. Whenever I hear of someone wanting to read
a novel that's just loads of fun but also a real work of literary merit, I recommend YOUR BLUES.
That readio personality was absolutely correct.
