From the Author:

Though purely fiction, Nowhere Else To Go arises from my experience raising children in a university town in the Sixties.

From the Back Cover:

"An absorbing read. The classic story of a small American town caught up in the social and political upheavals of the 1960's, perfectly captured by Judy Kirscht in one big-hearted novel.:"
                                                                                       --Valerie Hobbs, author, Call it a Gift.

"An honest appraisal of the way racial tension in America comes alive in its schools ... a powerful drama of an unresolved problem that tears lives apart. A gripping story dealing with painful truths all too common in today's society."
                                                                                     --Mary Trimble, author, Tenderfoot.
