The Parker Inheritance

The letter waits in a book, in a box, in an attic, in an old house in Lambert, South Carolina. It's waiting for Candice Miller. When Candice finds the letter, she isn't sure she should read it. It's addressed to her grandmother, after all, who left Lambert in a cloud of shame. But the letter describes a young woman named Siobhan Washington. An injustice that happened decades ago. A mystery enfolding the letter-writer. And the fortune that awaits the person who solves the puzzle. Grandma tried and failed. But now Candice has another chance. So with the help of Brandon Jones, the quiet boy across the street, she begins to decipher the clues in the letter. The challenge will lead them deep into Lambert's history, full of ugly deeds, forgotten heroes, and one great love; and deeper into their own families, with their own unspoken secrets. Can they find the fortune and fulfill the letter's promise before the summer ends?...

    My favorite kind of historical fiction--alternating points of view between the search for the past and the narrative of the events which transpired. Not usually used for children's books, and a bit sophisticated perhaps, because many of the characters are adults, but well done and compelling. The story involves Candice and her friend Brandon who are trying to find out what happened in a famous 50's tennis match between the white and black teams of a small South Carolina town. Great for readers g ...more

    This book seesaws between current times and the past of 1957 through 2007. Candice is spending the summer at her late grandmother's house in Lambert, away from her home and friends in Atlanta. Looking for something to read - for herself and the boy across the street - she finds a packet addressed to her. Inside is a letter, promising a fortune to the reader and to the town, if a series of puzzles can be solved. Candice learns that her mother, the town's first black woman city manager, had been ...more

    A book for middle-schoolers interested in the history of social reform, for those who have a desire to make changes but have no idea what, The Parker Inheritance delves back into Fifties times of social injustice with a steady hand.

    The Parker Inheritance takes place mostly in the present as Candice, a twelve-year-old girl, and Brandon, her across-the street neighbor spend the summer trying to solve an old riddle passed down from her grandmother.

    The book centers around three different issues: ra

    4.5 Stars. Terrific puzzle story/mystery with strong social commentary on not only racial issues but also sexual orientation. I enjoyed the references to THE WESTING GAME and the flips from past to present throughout the book.

    Reviewed from ARC provided by Scholastic

    Okay, I don't know about the rest of you, but this is my pick for Newbery this year. It will take a lot to beat this one for me. It's an awesome mystery, a great friendship and identity story, and a decisive critique of racism in America, all written at an appropriate level for its intended audience. Can't tell you much because I don't want to ruin the mystery, but trust me you NEED to read this one.

  • Donalyn

    I loved so many things about this book--the characters, the history, and the mystery. This would be a fabulous read aloud or a jumping off place for conversations about racism, family dynamics, and friendship.
