"An earnest, appealing tale." (Entertainment Weekly)
Two friends, Tom (white) and Sonny Jesus (black), are unaware of the problems their friendship poses in a racist town. Sonny's dad has been killed by the mysterious Peg-Leg; and just as the town seems to be getting over it, he strikes again.
"A wonderful book"
I heard this book when I first joined Audible but I go back to it because it is so good. Everything is so vivid that I can see the characters clearly in my mind and the twists to the end are most welcome.
