It is 1912 in coastal Maine, and Reverend Buckminster's son Turner is the new kid in town. Lonely and having trouble fitting in, he meets Lizzie Bright, an African-American girl from nearby Malaga Island who becomes his best friend. They share everything: secrets, worries, and the courage to take a stand against greed and racial prejudices in their community. When the townspeople try to force the residents off of Malaga Island, their friendship is tested and Turner and Lizzie face life's great challenges of loss and allegiance. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
