Set in 1959, this novel presents Jim Crow, racism, and segregation from multiple perspectives. In this story of witnessing without understanding, a naively prejudiced boy, in brief flashes of insight, starts to identify and question his assumptions about race.
From the Publisher:

Bobby and his family are visiting Civil War battlefields on the eve of the war's centenary, while inside their car, quiet battles rage. When an accident cuts their trip short, they return home on a bus and witness an incident that threatens to deny a black family seats. What they don't know is the reason for the family's desperation to be on that bus: a few towns away, their child is missing.

Lunch-Box Dream presents Jim Crow, racism, and segregation from multiple perspectives.  In this story of witnessing without understanding, a naïvely prejudiced boy, in brief flashes of insight, starts to identify and question his assumptions about race.

Annotation:
This compelling middle grade novel explores racism, segregation, and the intricacies of family relationships as the lives of two very different families intersect during the summer of 1959. Narration alternates between a history-obsessed white boy named Bobby on a tense family car trip visiting Civil War battlefields in the south, and numerous members of a black family from Georgia troubled by a missing child.
