The Middle Step (Paperback)
A powerful novel set in the turbulent north side of St. Louis, Missouri that explores the intersection of race, family, and poverty. Denise Pattiz Bogard has written a masterful view of inner city life many of us know nothing about.
“We all know that there are racial and economic lines that divide our community. Here's a novel full of vivid characters--fearful, damaged, foolish, and courageous characters-- who are struggling to cross that divide. The Middle Step shines a compassionate light on our divided world.” —John Dalton, Author of The Inverted Forest and Heaven Lake
