Set in rural Mississippi in the era before Civil Rights, this is perhaps the most powerful story written by Newbery Medal winner Mildred Taylor. A group of late-arriving white passengers show up to get on a fully-loaded bus during a heavy rainstorm. The black passengers are forced off, but in a cruel twist of fate, the bus plunges over the side of the bridge near town.
