Story of true friendship

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2011-09-30) Very Good Permalink

Finding My Place is about Tiphany Baker. She finds herself going to a new school where she is the only African American girl in her school and many people hate her for it. I would recommend this book because it shows the true meaning of friendship.
