Bone by Bone by Bone

by Tony Johnston
£6.99   paperback  Frances Lincoln Childrens Books (2010)

Bone by Bone by Bone by Tony Johnston Malcolm and I could no more be separated than green from grass. My daddy had forbidden me to play with him, on account of his being coloured. Though little by little I came to understand the barriers between Negroes and white folks, back then I knew of no rule about two boys not being friends.
The most important thing in Davidís life is his friendship with Malcolm. In a secret ceremony in a cave they even become blood brothers.
But this is 1950s Tennessee, and Malcolm is black. One day Davidís fiercely racist father lays down a terrible threat. If Malcolm ever enters their home, he will kill him. David tries to change his daddyís mind, but what will happen if Malcolm ever crosses the line?
A powerful and haunting book, countering the horror of racial hatred with a lyrical tribute to childhood friendship.
