Cracking the Ice – blurb #4

I’ve been sharing blurbs for Cracking the Ice, my novel due out in July and here’s another.  (A blurb is that glowing quote that when potential readers see it on the cover, prompts them to plunk down their hard-earned cash.) 

This next blurb comes from Jewell Parker Rhodes, author of Ninth Ward, a 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book. 

“A compelling, civil rights tale of a young man’s coming of age on the ice.  Hendrickson personalizes history with unforgettable characters.”
