The book choice for January is West of Rehoboth by Alexs D. Pate. Set in the early 1960s, West of Rehoboth is the moving story of twelve-year-old Edward Massey. Each summer, to escape the heat of Philadelphia, Edward’s family moves to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The “coloreds only” side of a pristine resort on Rehoboth Beach offers work for his mother and a sandy playground for his sister. But for Edward – an imaginative, inquisitive boy – it offers the chance to understand his reclusive, curmudgeonly Uncle Rufus, a man caught in a swirl of hard luck and bad choices.
