Summary
Friday Night Lights meets Dear Martin in this thought-provoking coming-of-age story about family, identity, and forgiveness.Tasia Quirk is young, Black, and fabulous. She's a senior, she's got great friends, and a supportive and wealthy family. She even plays football as the only girl on her private high school's team.But when she catches her mamma trying to stuff a mysterious box in the closet, her identity is suddenly called into question. Now Tasia's determined to unravel the lies that have overtaken her life. Along the way, she discovers what family and forgiveness really mean, and that her answers don't come without a fee. An artsy bisexual boy from the Valley could help her find them-but only if she stops fighting who she is, beyond the color of her skin.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Tasia Quirk's enviable life friends, rich parents, big house, a spot on her private school's football team starts to crack when she discovers her mother hiding a box containing pictures and newspaper clippings spanning almost all of Tasia's 18 years. Most incriminating is a photo of her mother cozied up to a white man who, it turns out, is her biological father, not the black man her mother is married to. Suddenly, she has to reevaluate everything she thought was true about herself, and in the process, get to know the family she never knew she had. Debut author Montgomery pulls no punches with dynamic, engaging Tasia, whose sharp, introspective first-person narrative gives readers deep insight into how she processes the shift in her reality, not just the realization that she has a white father, which has a real bearing on her racial identity, but how she defines family in general. This smart, compassionate coming-of-age story about a sensitive, talented black girl in the midst of pivotal growth is a great pick for fans of Brandy Colbert.--Qurratulayn Muhammad Copyright 2018 Booklist"
