Madison Washington, an outsider at her small-town Georgia high school, has frequently been the subject of bullies’ taunts. She dealt with it since she had more urgent issues to attend to. Up until that morning, Maddy’s most carefully guarded secret—that she is biracial—remained a secret. Because of her passionate white father, Thomas Washington, she has lived her entire life pretending to be white.
“This thrilling young adult novel explores the history and impact of racism in America while following a biracial teen as her Georgia high school hosts its first mixed-race prom.”
