The Devil in America

Author: 

Kai Ashante Wilson

This is a beautifully told and heart-breaking story of a girl who has powers she does not fully understand. The powers run in her family, but most knowledge of them was lost when the family was brought to America as slaves. The story takes place during Reconstruction, and Wilson expertly weaves his fantasy into the all too horrific real events of the time—and although the story is firmly rooted in the past, it echoes into our time, as well.
