Abstract:

"Joseph, a seventeen year old student leaves his family and continent to attend college in a new world. Joseph is a disciplined and intelligent student who is devoted to the friends he makes in school, but his dedication is not always reciprocated ... He is subjected to racism by fellow students but finds comfort in his outstanding academic achievements. Although there are moments of doubt about the dedication of his trusted friend Wendy, she turns out to be the only one who remains infallible. As his friends abandon him, Joseph realizes that wealth and fame are more powerful threats than ethnic prejudice to his cross-cultural relationships"--Page 4 of cover.
