Rose Lee Carter is a 13 year old African American girl living in Mississippi in 1955. She spends her days picking cotton and her nights dreaming of the North, where she can have a better life. All around her, African American people are being shot, beaten, and treated poorly. When news gets out that 14 year old Emmett Till has been kidnapped and lynched for allegedly whistling at a white woman just a few towns over, she is deeply affected and saddened by the injustice all around her. Midnight Without a Moon is an important historical fiction novel about the coming of age during one of the most pivotal times in American history.
