You’ll learn a world of insight from 9-year-old Starla!
My daddy always said being brave wasn’t not being scared. Being brave was keeping going when you were.”
― Susan Crandall, Whistling Past the Graveyard
1963, deep in the state of Mississippi, lives young Starla, along with her grandmother, Mamie. Starla’s Daddy works on an oil rig and her Momma, Lulu, left several years ago to become a famous singer in Nashville.
Mamie runs a pretty tight ship, too rigid for this little redheaded spitfire. One afternoon, Starla, after an altercation with an adult, thinks she’ll end up in reform school. Off Starla goes — on a journey to her Momma in Nashville where she’ll find solace & a new life.
It’s the journey of her lifetime as she meets Eula & discovers a world where the color of your skin really makes a difference.
You will be rooting for Starla all the way with each twist in the road. You’ll laugh at her take on life situations and most definitely cry at the cruelties & injustices Eula & Starla experience.
Starla learns important life lessons — especially the good in herself.
You’ll learn SO much yourself from Starla….
