A good read, especially for teens/young adults. Ostensibly about race issues, but the predominant theme is really about family and belonging-or not-as experienced by teenagers. Two very different girls, cousins, have in common the pain of divorced parents and other teenage angst issues. Relatively tame compared to that which kids today are used to (in spite of scenarios in which the 15 years olds hitchhike, meet up with a guy just out of reform school and the like.) A story that kept me going, left me gratified. ~ Reviewed by Heather Bellanca
