Rachel Harper's debut novel has won praise for its vivid protrayal of a mixed-race girl coming of age in a family that's falling apart. Nellie's white mother and black father are breaking up. Nellie, whose black skin and blonde hair have always made her feel like an outsider, feels even more out of place traveling across the country with her dark-skinned dad, taking her white, sassy cousin Jess to meet her own father. But they might have more in common than they all think

Editorial Reviews

“It’s undeniable that the classic narrative of the transformative summer cries out for a contemporary heroine like Nellie, and the family tensions, poignant discoveries, and richly evoked setting should help this find a broad audience.” Booklist
