Through the curious, joyful eyes of 10-year-old Sugar, readers experience life on a Louisiana sugar plantation after Emancipation. Issues arise when Chinese workers are brought in to help harvest the cane. Sugar soon realizes that she must be the one to bridge the cultural gap and bring the community together. See the two other two books in the Louisiana Girls Trilogy, Ninth Ward (opens in a new window) and Bayou Magic (opens in a new window).
