Friends. Boys. School. They even plan to attend the same historically African American college.But nothing can always remain the same.As their Portland neighborhood goes from rough-and-tumble to up-and-coming, Maya feels her connection to Nikki and their community slipping away.

Nikki spends more time at trendy coffee shops than backyard barbecues, and their new high school principal is more committed to erasing the neighborhoods ghetto reputation than honoring its history. Home doesnt feel like home anymore. As Maya struggles to hold on to her black heritage, she begins to wonder with whom--or where--she belongs.

Does growing up have to mean growing apart?In a captivating coming-of-age story, Renée Watson explores the experiences, transitions, and cultural expectations of young African Americans in a changing world.
