Item description for A Stranger in our Midst by Betty Durham J...

Terror. Anger. Revenge. Murder. Dogged Meanness. Suspense. Love. Respect. Responsibility. Family. Joy. This book has all of these, plus much more. It has the attributes a young boy or girl look for in a book. It's a real page turner written from the viewpoint of Betty Jane, a sixth grade student. This book for young adults deals with how life was lived in the mid 20th century (1940's) before modern conveniences came to a small rural farm community in the South. The main focus of the story involves two 12 year old girls who are in the sixth grade in a small one-room schoolhouse. Their friend's father, Mr. T.J. Looney, is killed for no apparent reason. The two girls set about trying to find out why this happened. In the process, they stumble upon a deadly killer who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. This involves "punishing" these girls and their families for exposing him. While the main theme of the story is on the killer and his antics, the story also has many other situations which need to be resolved. These events range from being heart-rending to amusing. There are real life lessons to be learned in this story. There are decisions to be made which test the metal of the people in this hillbilly community. The book is entertaining and inspiring. There is no end of excitement and intrigue in this book. Plus, the book confronts many modern day challenges students face in today's world. Challenges on how to behave in an honest and forthright manner.
