By Kimberley B. Jones
Genre: Young Adult
Sasha and Leah are living the good life. They have money, good looks, great boyfriends,
loving families, supportive friends, good grades, and, most importantly, they have each
other. They do everything together, from playing sports to planning for their big prom
night, and they share a bond of trust and loyalty almost as if they were sisters. However,
beneath the surface neither their lives nor their friendship are as untroubled as they seem.
When a friend from Sasha’s past becomes the victim of police brutality, their friendship is
put to the test as both girls are forced to confront their values and what it means to be
privileged in American society.
