Publisher's Weekly says, "Reid maintains a lively sense of dialogue and characterization, and her memoir is an affecting tale of a girl's transformation in a climate of fear and pervasive, bleak Southern racism."
Elyse Singleton, author of This Side of the Sky, says, “Though a child herself, Kim Reid sat on the edge of a front row seat to one of the twentieth century’s most bizarre and baffling murder cases. With No Place Safe she delivers her experience as a compelling story told from a sensitive gut and a formidable intellect. A narrative woven with strands of threatened innocence and Southern gothic gives No Place Safe the texture of a modern, urban To Kill a Mockingbird.”
Sounds intriguing, yes?
Kim's pub date is Oct. 2, but the book should be in the stores starting tomorrow. How exciting! Look for her chat here Oct. 1.
