Sarah was one of the first African American students to attend a newly integrated school. She believed that her first day would not be so bad, but she was wrong. There were spit balls being thrown at her, pencils were jammed into her side, and awful racial slurs screamed at her for the next two months of her high school senior year. Forced to work with a white student on a school project, Sarah and Linda must confront harsh truths about race, power and how they really feel about one another.
