A black teenage girl has no power in 1950, but when Ruby’s barely conscious, brain-damaged older sister gets pregnant in the “crazy house,” Ruby races to rescue the mixed-race baby from the horrors of the system — and stop whoever is violating her sister.

 

 

 

Maddie is a brilliant baseball player — but she’s a vegetable.

Then, she’s pregnant.

And nobody knows who the father is.

But she’s black — and her baby isn’t.

 

It’s northern Ohio. It’s 1950. Blacks over there, whites over here.

Ruby is a young black teenager, hopelessly enraged by her older sister Maddie’s injury — and broken-hearted by the state it’s left Maddie in.

Jake is an up-and-coming white salesman on the make, with a history of easy hookups and an eye on politics as his future.

But Alice trips them both up.

 

The twist at the end of Unintended will leave you grappling with what you really believe about justice and its price, and what goodness is really worth.
