Ptomaine Poison by Janice Liddell

Marianne Williams and Mary-Lou LeBlanc have divergent histories and clash over racial issues as they meet for the first time. Their 14-year-old daughters are collaborating on a school project to commemorate one of the most significant events of the Civil Rights movement, the 1963 church bombing that killed four black girls and injured 22 others. The girls are convening at the LeBlanc home in an affluent white suburb of Birmingham to finalize and rehearse their skit. Their project and the attitudes of their respective mothers demonstrate that the racial past is not yet dead, but through new visions of the youth, including the friendship of their brothers, neither is hope.
