Clean Getaway

Girls Think of Everything

 Summer is winding down, but there is still time to go on a road trip! Pick up a copy of Clean Getaway by Nic Stone and hop aboard G’Ma’s Winnebago as she and her grandson Scoob travel across the southern United States to retrace a trip she took with her late husband over 50 years ago. As Scoob and his G'Ma drive across the states, they visit historic sites of racist violence and Scoob uncovers G'Ma's past. Scoob learns about what it was like for his grandparents to travel across the south as an interracial couple in the 1960s. During the present-day trip, Scoob and his G'Ma experience the same kind of racism as a white elderly woman travelling with a young black man. Although they face heartbreaking sites and situations, your heart will be warmed by this loving family.
