Summary
  • "Liliana Cruz does what it takes to fit in at her new nearly all-white school, but when family secrets come out and racism at school gets worse than ever, she must decide what she believes in and take a stand"--
  • It's fine that Lilliana's best friend, Jade, is all caught up in her new boyfriend lately. It's fine that her inner-city high school is disorganized and underfunded. It's fine that her father took off again, and she's left with her increasingly crazy mom, her heathen little brothers. But it turns out before he left, he signed Liliana up for a school desegregation program called METCO. At Westburg, Liliana-- half-Guatemalan and half-Salvadorian-- must struggle with being a minority. The only way to survive is to whiten up. When she discovers the truth about her father-- he's undocumented and he's been deported back to Guatemala-- nothing is fine. And Lili is done changing who she is, denying her culture and where she came from. -- adapted from jacket and Goodreads info
