Kidd had always been exposed to injustice her entire childhood so it seemed like the norm for there to be separation between black and white people. She reflected her experiences onto her fiction novel following 14-year old, Lily Owens in South Carolina. Lilly lives with her father T.Ray and their black maid, Rosaleen. Though a maid to T.Ray, Rosaleen acts as a mother figure to Lilly. Since the age of 2 years-old, Lily has been trying to remember what happened in the death of her mother, Deborah.
