They told him his best friend wasn't human.  Robert's father assisted
the Underground Railroad.  His mother adamantly opposed abolition.  His
best friend was a black boy named William Henry.  As a nation neared its boiling
point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict.  The one thing he
couldn't do was nothing at all.  William Henry is a coming-of-age story about
a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils
of society, even within the walls of the church.  In the safety of an uplifting
friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day.
