Maxine Marshall is brooding philosopher and an earnest dreamer; quite a heavy mix! She is just biding her time until she can speak out for peace and human and civil rights. 1955 might be a tricky time for her to do that since that was before many schools in the US were integrated, but find out what happens when she unexpectedly travels to the future! Maxine’s talisman, the writing quill that was the first purchase her great-grandmother made when emancipated from slavery in the 1860s, helps Maxine find her voice and her own place through her writing and exploration of civil rights. Read all about it in the first Fifties Chix book, Travel to Tomorrow.
