From the Publisher
Born into a comfortable Washington, D.C., home, Naomi Jefferson leads a life that is only occasionally marred by racism. As a teenager in the 1960s, she is concerned mostly with issues around virginity. 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.
