The book is very creative, and though it is a work of fiction, it does represent many true acccounts of human experience.
The setting focuses on the arrival of the KKK in Vermont (yes, in the American Northeast) and how different people react; events that occur; and glimpses into people's reasoning and beliefs.
With guidance from a grown-up, young readers will be able to appreciate the matter of the book, while older readers should certainly appreciate the authors interesting means of conveying the information and insight.
