From the Publisher:

Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the weekly bus from Jackson comes through his town. His neighbor Stacey Logan and Stacey's brothers and sister are there to see their grandmother off on a trip. Jeremy's friend Josias Williams is taking the bus to his new job. But Josias and the Logans are black, and in Mississippi in the 1930s, black people can't ride the bus if that means there won't be enough room for white people to ride. When several white passengers arrive at the last minute, the driver sends Josias and Stacey's grandmother off the bus. Then comes a terrifying moment that unites all the townspeople in a nightmare that will change their lives forever.

From the Back Cover:

A day of tragedy

Jeremy Simms watches from the porch of the general store as the weekly bus from Jackson comes splashing through a heavy rainstorm. Jeremy's friends Stacey and Cassie Logan are there to see their grandmother off on a trip, and one by one, the passengers board the bus. But this is Mississippi in the 1930s, so when several white passengers arrive at the last minute, the driver roughly orders the black passengers off the bus, including Stacey's grandmother. Then, in the driving rain, disaster strikes, and Jeremy witnesses a shocking end to the day's drama.
