Fireflies In December

Jennifer Erin Valent's Fireflies in December is a winner of Jerry B. Jenkins' Christian Writer's Guild Operation First Novel Contest - and I can see why! I adored this book. It is the story of Jessilyn Lassiter, a young girl growing up in the south in 1932. She deals with racial tensions and the Ku Klux Klan, young love, her best friend being a young black girl, and so much more in this tender story that only leaves me wanting more. Valent is wonderful and I am watching for more from her!
