Description
"Liliana Cruz is hitting a wall -- or rather, walls. There's the wall that delineates Liliana's vibrant inner-city Boston neighborhood from Westburg, the wealthy -- and white -- suburban high school she's just been accepted into. And there's the wall Liliana creates within herself, because to survive at Westburg, she can't just lighten up, she has to 'whiten' up. So what if she changes her name? So what if she changes the way she talks? So what if she's seeing her neighborhook in a different light? But then some hard truths are exposed: it isn't that her father doesn't want to come home ... he can't -- and her entire family is in jeopardy. Then simmering racial tensions at the school reach a fever pitch -- and the walls that divide feel insurmountable. But a wall isn't always a barrier. It can be a foundation for something better. And Liliana must choose: use this foundation as a platform to speak her truth, or risk the wall crumbling on top of her"--,Provided by publisher.
