The good always die young.
Ten-year-old Roy Brown sits in his chair at the kitchen table alone. Yesterday his brother, Billy, was killed on Pine Landing Road. Sixteen-year-old Billy is the Eagle’s star basketball player. For Roy, he’s “the swellest brother ever.”
Why did Billy die? Why was he drinking beer before the big game?
Waiting for the sunrise, Roy remembers that day in rural Alabama 1965.
