Summary

Chronicles a year in the life of a young black girl growing up in Ohio in the 1940s, and the hardships she endures.

The chronicle of the tragic lives of a poor black family in post-Depression 1940s Ohio. Every night Pecola, unlovely and unloved, prays for blue eyes like those of her privileged white schoolfellows. She becomes the focus of the mingled love and hatred engendered by her family's frailty and the world's cruelty.
