The summer of 1968 is a time of change for Shiloh Reese. Her brother, Ben, has been called to the army. Her father has forbidden her to attend Columbia in New York come fall. And a new friend on the L-train has introduced her to the promises of Bobby Kennedy. But as the summer continues and Chicago begins to boil, Shiloh realizes no one can put things right but herself. Based on firsthand accounts of the Chicago 68 Riots, Shiloh Shake the World to Turn tells the story of a nation on the brink of implosion.
