Narrator Channie Waites continues her narration of the Zora and Me trilogy, inspired by the early life of Zora Neale Hurston. Listeners return to Eatonville, Florida, the first incorporated all-Black city in the U.S., as a white vigilante group terrorizes the town by lynching a Black man within its borders. Throughout changing family dynamics and personal relationships, 14-year-olds Carrie, Zora, and Teddy wrestle with their shock at the racism that is on full display in their town in the early twentieth century. With a somber tone and multiple authentic-sounding accents, Waites adds wonderful richness to the story's descriptive language. Her reverence for the characters and the historical setting is clear. Listeners new to the series will want to start with the first audiobook. S.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
