My novel Cracking the Ice picked up another great endorsement, this one arriving just in time to make the cover. Lillie Johnson Edwards, Ph.D., Professor of History and African-American Studies at Drew University, gives this rave review.
“Cracking the Ice brilliantly teaches about the insidious nature of racism and the heroism of young scholar-athlete, Jessie Stackhouse. The riveting plot and realistic characters powerfully expose the racial stereotypes, racism and violence that plagued African-American students recruited to elite prep schools in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Hendrickson shows the turmoil of these critical years through the eyes of his story’s heroes, villains and victims, marvelously and realistically portraying one of the most critical moments in school integration and civil rights.”
