Imani T edited the summary of Let the Circle Be Unbroken Friday, August 12, 2011.
Cassie and her family live in Mississippi in the middle of the Great Depression. Her brother's ex-friend, T.J. is going on trial, for a crime he claims to have not committed. This is rare for a black boy in the south. Meanwhile, Cassie's big brother, Stacey, is growing up and changing before her eyes. Her family is also having financial problems. Cotton, the main crop that they grow is not worth as much as it used to be. Cassie's biracial cousin, Suzella comes to visit and Cassie is very jealous. Throughout the story, racism and struggles, threaten to tear the family apart, but the Logans, are determined to "let the circle be unbroken".
