The riveting issues entangled in the deep South at the birth of the Civil Rights Movement in America creates the setting for Spite Fences (Krisher, 1994), a book rich with dilemmas along with solutions. To accompany the new color battles being faced by citizens, both white and black, in Kinship, Georgia in the summer of 1960, author Trudy Krisher creates a plot that incorporates many of the typical challenging and complicated issues a young girl encounters while growing up. Maggie Pugh has lived a life faced with poverty, hatred, and bitterness from both her family and her community.
