Only in Music in My Heart
Opening and Potential Plot Events
- ↑ In that book, Yvonna has a broken wrist, but departs before the end of the book. She is coming back from the Mississippi Summer Project at the start of the Journey Book.
- ↑ While not explicitly stated to be African-American, it is most likely she is or passes as such. Clues towards this include: her knowledge of gospel music in her church; her and her late grandmother's singing of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" (known as the Black American National Anthem); being mistaken for a member of a visiting youth choir (it is unlikely a dominantly white or other raced church would come to sing at a black church in the 60s); and the fact that during racial scenarios in the book she is not singled out whereas a white or other-raced child spending significant amounts of time with black people would have been controversial in the 1960s and been made note of.
