"Moses won acclaim for her first children's book, THE LEGEND OF BUDDY BUSH, based on her childhood in rural North Carolina and a hero who narrowly escapes lynching. Next, in 1940, we find Buddy's 12-year-old twin cousins on the verge of baptism in racially charged Occoneechee Neck, North Carolina. There's a week to go until the ceremony, a step that is especially important to their strict, religious mother. Brother Luke, known as "Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes," will be fine at being good, but narrator Leon is having a hard time getting through even the next week without sinning. This is a perfect book for audio--it's dialect-rich and protagonist-strong. Muhammad Cunningham's spunky, saucy reading shines and carries listeners along, augmenting the print version. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
