Description

In 1959 Virginia, the lives of two girls on opposite sides of the battle for civil rights will be changed forever.Sarah Dunbar is one of the first black students to attend the previously all-white Jefferson High School. An honors student at her old school, she is put into remedial classes, spit on, and tormented daily.Linda Hairston is the daughter of one of the town's most vocal opponents of school integration. She has been taught all her life that the races should be kept "separate but equal."Forced to work together on a school project, Sarah and Linda must confront harsh truths about race, power, and how they really feel about one another.Boldly realistic and emotionally compelling, Lies We Tell Ourselves is a brave and stunning novel about the finding truth amidst the lies, and finding your voice even when others are determined to silence it.
