Dowell, Frances O'Roark. TROUBLE THE WATER

Dowell, Frances O'Roark.  TROUBLE THE WATER
New York : Atheneum, 2015
IL 5-8, RL 5.7
Life in a small town in 1953 is pretty predictable. 
Everyone knows each other.  Blacks and whites pretty much leave each other alone.  When 11 year old Callie who is black spots a runaway dog, she decides to try to find the owner.  When she follows the dog, she meets Wendell, a white boy on a quest of his own. The two team up to try to solve an old mystery and overcome the anger of other children because of their friendship.
