Lunch-Box Dream

School And Library

Author: Abbott, Tony
ISBN: 9780374346737 Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

Bobby and his family are visiting Civil War battlefields on the eve of the warÕs centenary, while inside their car, quiet battles rage. When an accident cuts their trip short, they return home on a bus and witness an incident that threatens to deny a black family seats. What they donÕt know is the reason for the familyÕs desperation to be on that bus: a few towns away, their child is missing.

Lunch-Box Dream presents Jim Crow, racism, and segregation from multiple perspectives. In this story of witnessing without understanding, a na•vely prejudiced boy, in brief flashes of insight, starts to identify and question his assumptions about race.
