This books deals with a difficult subject, and handles it well. The story is good, the art is nice, but I had problems with the narrative. My own experience when I was a teenager with racist men like this doesn't match the story. No white supremacist father I knew hid it from his children. The children were indoctrinated from day one. And I found it difficult to believe that in an era when the Klan operated freely without fear that the men in Pa's grocery store would lower their voices. I recommend this book, because it does deal with racism and racist family members, and lynching trees and cowardly and clandestine attacks on black people, but for me it was truly fiction.
