Product Description

Coming of age is never easy, but in the pre-Civil War South, it's especially confusing. Thirteen-year-old Robert must grapple with his father's involvement with the Underground Railroad, his mother's anti-abolitionism, and the fact that his own best friend---an African American---is subject to the effects of slavery. Can he take a stand for justice? 250 pages, softcover from Moody.

Publisher's Description

They told him his best friend wasn't human. Robert's father assisted the Underground Railroad. His mother adamantly opposed abolition. His best friend was a black boy named William Henry. As a nation neared its boiling point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict. The one thing he couldn't do was nothing at all. William Henry is a coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils of society, even within the walls of the church. In the safety of an uplifting friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day.
