Abstract:

"Set between the Deep South and New York City during the 1960s and early 70s, a biracial teenage boy's new life in a big city is disrupted by childhood memories of the summer when racial tensions in his hometown reached a tipping point"--

It's 1971 when Huey Fairchild begins his first day at Claremont Prep, one of New York City's most prestigious boys' schools. His mother had uprooted her family from their small hometown of Akersburg, Georgia a few years earlier, leaving behind Huey's white father and the racial unrest that ran deeper than the Chattahoochee River. At Claremont, where the only other non-white person is the janitor, Huey quickly realizes that racism can lurk beneath even the nicest school uniform. And after a quick slip of his temper, Huey finds himself on academic probation and facing legal charges. -- adapted from back cover
