Publisher's Summary

Between the Lines, narrated by Melanie Hooks, is a multiple award-winning book which tells the story of three girls who become friends during the racially charged aftermath of the 1967 Detroit Riots.

Hattie Percha is crushed when the riots start on her 10th birthday, and when she must move away from her treasured childhood home and friends, attending public school for the first time, she’s afraid her life is over. Then, she meets Beverly Jo Nichols, her first Black friend, and Crackers, a fearless tomboy. Despite opposition from Hattie’s mother and a racist teacher, the unlikely friends join forces. As the self-proclaimed Dream Girls, they challenge bigotry and intolerance, willing to do whatever it takes to hold onto what’s most precious to them all, their friendship.
