Map of Ireland

by Stephanie Grant
£7.99   paperback  Simon & Schuster (Scribner) (2009)

Map of Ireland by Stephanie Grant In 1974, when Ann Ahern begins her junior year of high school, South Boston is in crisis - Catholic mothers are blockading buses to keep Black children from the public schools, and teenagers are raising havoc in the streets.
 
Ann, an outsider in her own Irish-American community, is infatuated with her beautiful French teacher, Mademoiselle Eugénie, who hails from Paris but is of African descent. Spurred by her adoration for Eugénie, Ann embarks on a journey that leads her beyond South Boston, through the fringes of the Black Power movement, toward love, and ultimately to the truth about herself.
 
In this ambitious and arresting novel, Stephanie Grant's searing prose, powerful storytelling, and richly drawn characters bring tumultuous moment in American history into perfect focus.
