Born into a comfortable Washington, D.C., home, Naomi Jefferson leads a life that is only occasionally marred by racism.

But all that changes when her older brother, Joshua–who seems destined for greatness–is killed in a tragic car accident on his way to a civil rights demonstration. Now the rift between black and white America becomes much too personal, and Naomi embarks on a journey to honor her brother’s legacy–and to find herself.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Girls Don't Cry I thought this was a remarkable book because when you read this it put you in the position of the character in that period of time. Especialy when Naomi brother died you put yourself in that position and say what would I do if something like that ever happen to me and it also tell you how life was then and you can compare it to now . that why I think it's a remarkable book
