Sources of Light by Margaret McMullan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Decent historical fiction about life in Jackson MS in 1962/1963 - what it was like to be white, slightly different, and not totally understand what segregation and racism were. Sam's story, starting with her wanting to be Mary Alice (she of the bra, cute outfits and split-level house) to moving beyond that to becoming a photographer, is rather ordinary. It's the events around her and the way in which she sees them that makes this a better story.
