* Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction* Nominated for a 2013 Edgar Award
* Book of the Year (Non-fiction, 2012) The Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor In 1949, Florida’s orange industry was booming, and citrus barons got rich on the backs of cheap Jim Crow labor. To maintain order and profits, they turned to Willis V. McCall, a violent sheriff who ruled Lake County with murderous resolve. When a white seventeen-year-old Groveland girl cried rape, McCall was fast on the trail of four young blacks who dared to envision a future for themselves beyond the citrus groves. By day’s end, the Ku Klux Klan had rolled into town, burning the homes of blacks to the ground and chasing hundreds into the swamps, hell-bent on lynching the young men who came to be known as “the Groveland Boys.”
And so began the chain of events that would bring Thurgood Marshall, the man known as “Mr. Civil Rights,” and the most important American lawyer of the twentieth century, into the deadly fray. Associates thought it was suicidal for him to wade into the “Florida Terror” at a time when he was irreplaceable to the burgeoning civil rights movement, but the lawyer would not shrink from the fight–not after the Klan had murdered one of Marshall’s NAACP associates involved with the case and Marshall had endured continual threats that he would be next.
Drawing on a wealth of never-before-published material, including the FBI’s unredacted Groveland case files, as well as unprecedented access to the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund files, King shines new light on this remarkable civil rights crusader, setting his rich and driving narrative against the heroic backdrop of a case that U.S. Supreme Court justice Robert Jackson decried as “one of the best examples of one of the worst menaces to American justice.

Through twenty-five interlinked stories, each written from a different character’s point of view, 25 Perfect Days captures the sacrifice, courage, and love needed to survive and eventually overcome this dystopian nightmare.
“Move over The Hunger games and Divergent,Mark Tullius has done the impossible; hes produced a dystopian novel that teens and adults will both enjoy” – Jo
“Absolutely *loved* this book. One of the better adult dystopian tales I’ve read in quite a long time…The writing is smooth and precise, a keen edged knife that, at times, cuts right to the heart of a character and gives the reader a visceral shock.” – L. Spier
“This is a cautionary tale, warning readers of the dangers we face in allowing any government to curtail personal freedoms. Things in 25 PERFECT DAYS fall apart little by little until “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” no longer have any meaning. This is definitely a frightening and disturbing look at what can happen when greed and power run amuck.” – Kacunnin

With a new introduction by the author
Finalist for the National Book Award: The story of a young mother deported and separated from her child, and the pair’s efforts to locate each other years later
Highwire Moon narrates the journeys of a young mother and daughter divided. Serafina is a Mexican-Indian scraping by in Southern California; detained by immigration officials, she tragically lacks the English to tell them that Elvia, her three-year-old, is resting in a nearby car. After her deportation, Serafina tries in vain to return to the States, while Elvia must survive several foster homes, later to be reclaimed by her father. By the time Elvia is fifteen, she’s pregnant and surrounded by drugs. She decides to find her mother across the border—at the very same time that Serafina goes in search of her. Highwire Moon is gritty and affecting, a family saga that couldn’t be of more relevance today.
