Overview

Clover Hill is ten years old when her father, the principal of the local elementary school, marries a white woman, Sara Kate. Just hours later, an automobile accident compels Clover to forge a relationship with the new stepmother she hardly knows in this beautiful, enduring novel about a family lost and found. First published by Algonquin in 1990 and winner of the Lillian Smith Award for Southern literature that enhances racial awareness, Clover is a national bestseller and has been recommended reading for classrooms across the country. Now on our thirtieth anniversary we have the pleasure of republishing this Algonquin classic in trade paperback, with an original essay by the author. In the spirit of Cold Sassy Tree and The Secret Life of Bees, Clover is a witty, insightful classic for readers of all ages.

This book is one of the best that I've read so far. It will help you to understand what it's like to live with a white when your black or the other way around. Clover is a wonderful novel that is an easy-to-read book. If you don't read the book Clover, then you'll never know what you're missing out on.

I loved this book. It is a beautiful and sometimes sad story about an African American girl and her White mother. Sanders writes about relationship issues in a subtle, not in your face, way. I love Sanders' down to earth style, and, after talking with her at a book signing, found her to be a truly delightful and friendly person. I would recommend any of her books.

A realistic voice coming from the South. The author, Dori, is an inspiration.

the merge a sophisticated group of each ancient species coming together in one camp can we all survive or will we all turn against and start war. Rules 1appropriate stuff must be to done outside of camp 2 you can only be two species if someone bites you 3 no godmodding 4 follow these rules if not followed certain death will come 5 war parties are announced (like war games but you must find the hidden black Shield) 6 only be rude or mean if it applies to your character's personality 7 try to always make your bio and try to update it every time something new happens to you 8 the limit of RPing characters is up to 4 please enjoy this and do not curse non stop it sounds ridiculously stupid
