In this sequel to Jennifer's award-winning debut novel Fireflies in December, Jessilyn Lassiter and her best friend Gemma Teague have survived prejudice and heartache in their lifelong friendship, but the summer of 1936 threatens to tear them apart yet again. Gemma's job with the wealthy Hadley family leads to a crush on their youngest son. But Jessilyn's insistence that he's no good and that no rich white man would ever truly fall for a poor black girl like Gemma puts them at odds. Tragedy strikes when Jessilyn's cherished neighbor girl is hit by a car and killed. Things get worse when an elderly friend is falsely accused of the crime, and the only way to clear his name is to put her family's livelihood in jeopardy. For Jessilyn, this is a choice too hard to bear and she wonders where to turn for answers, especially when an angry mob threatens vigilante justice. Jennifer's third book, Catching Moondrops, releases in Fall 2010.

I really enjoyed this book. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book though. I'm just waiting for Luke to come to his senses with Jessilyn. Uggghhh!!!! He is hopeless

This book was kind of slow, especially when I had to take time to sort out so many names that were similar ~ Harley, Hadley, Hamley, etc.
