When racism tears a school apart, can love put it back together?

As the senior star quarterback of Charleston Preparatory school in South Carolina, Scott Kincaid is poised for a spectacular professional career in sports. Though he and Reyna Lewis have been best friends for six years, between leading Charleston Prep to victory week after week, and seeking the approval of his tyrannical, racist mother, he doesn’t have time to develop anything more with her. But when his once perfect, healthy body is attacked by a debilitating disease, he reevaluates what is important in life. Just when he finally realizes he’s in love with his half black, half Puerto Rican best friend Reyna, a presidential election throws their small private school into racial turmoil. Now it’s up to Scott and Reyna to unify their school and their city. But it just might cost them their newfound relationship.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This book was so good that I had to recommend it to my mother, who, like me, couldn’t put it down until it was finished…it left you wanting more, wishing the story would never end.

*******

This book is a modern interracial romance, with both teens pressured from the outside. He must win football games for his sports-addicted mom; she must represent the black students in a racially charged time. I’ve always said a good book causes a reaction that stays with you. I finished this book three days ago and I’m still thinking about it. The ending is a shocking twist–I find myself mulling over ways the characters could have changed the outcome, as if it was a news story instead of a novel. Gripping action, empathetic characters, a quick read. Enjoy it!

This is the 4th book I’ve read by Leslie Dubois and I have to say that I think this may be my favorite thus far. Reyna and Scott’s story will probably stay with me for a very long time. It gave me what I can best describe as a full emotional work out.
