Witness by Karen Hess

A free verse account of the Ku Klux Klan moving into a small Vermont town and its affects on its citizens as told through their voices. The story centers on Leonora, a 12 year old African American girl and Rachel a 6 year old Jewish girl. Okay, but not engaging. Good for story theater.
Reed Reads Score: 3.5
