CROSSING DAY by William A. Glass is a young adult novel that imagines what life would now be like in North America if the area that currently comprises the United States were divided into two hostile nations.


The novels action takes place one hundred and sixty years after the Confederacy won the Battle of Altamaha Crossing and gained independence. Slaves of African

descent still perform most of the labor in the South.


This seems normal to Ryan Walters and his friends who attend high school in Alabama. Like teenagers everywhere, they enjoy sharing videos, playing sports, and hanging out together. Jaybird’s Drive-In is a favorite gathering place.

There, the teens befriend Mish, a slave girl who works as a server. When the restaurant’s owner sells Mish to a dirty old man, Ryan and his friends awaken to the injustice around them. Despite the danger, they decide to help Mish escape.


One reader describes Crossing Day as an “action-packed thriller.” Another said that the novel left her with a “head full of thoughts.” The author, William A. Glass, points out that his novel tackles controversial questions while telling an exciting story. “If for no other reason, discerning readers will want to see how I handle the dicey subject matter.”


Glass, a former business executive, has published two other novels: As Good As Can Be and Off Broadway; A Marriage Drama. In addition to writing novels, Glass coaches soccer at the University of South Carolina Salkehatchie.
