Oreo GirlseBook - 2017
Racism. Bigotry. And an unbreakable bond of love between an old woman and a young girl. Claire Elizabeth Jones, a precocious seven year old, is growing up in small racially-divided Milburn, Arkansas in 1963. Her mom died a year earlier, and her dad, the town’s only detective, has his hands full investigating a case—the death of a white toddler by a black teenager—that has most folks siding by color. His defense of the teen has stirred up more trouble than he and his daughter can handle. The girl is often left in the capable hands of Miss Dorothy, her family’s seventy-seven year old maid. The two frequently swap stories while sitting in the back yard, drinking milk from Mason jars and devouring Oreos until they’re both full as ticks. Aside from cookies and conversations, they share the gift of clairvoyance. After a cross is burned on the family’s front lawn, Dorothy’s visions and Claire’s dreams begin to escalate, revealing something horrific on the horizon.
