Midnight Without A Moon by Linda Williams Jackson
Published by HMH Books for Young Readers, 2018
It's Mississippi in the summer of 1955, and Rose Lee Carter can't wait to move north. For now, she's living with her sharecropper grandparents on a white man's cotton plantation. Then, one town over, an African American boy, Emmett Till, is killed for allegedly whistling at a white woman. When Till's murderers are unjustly acquitted, Rose realises that the South needs a change and that she should be part of the movement.
