About this title

Synopsis:

A Black girl struggles to fulfill her father's dreams and to help make a place for her family in a white town in the Southwest at the turn of the century

From the Publisher:

Lena can recite the Scriptures by heart. Hoping to make her adored Papa proud of her and to make her white classmates notice her "Magic Mind," not her black skin, Lena vows to win the Bible-quoting contest. But winning does not bring Lena what she expected. Instead of honor, violence and death erupt and strike the one she loves most dearly. Lena, who has believed in vengeance, must now learn how to forgive.
