Description
" 'It's hopeless for us.' Five years ago, young Matty Warren never dreamed of saying such a thing. When her family gained their freedom in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and moved to the North Slope Village on Beacon HIll, she was a joyful optimist. ... Now, at age fifteen, she can no longer hide from the disheartening truth. Certain events have made that clear. It all started with a frightening incident on Boston Common, a chance encounter wiht a friendly white girl and an unexpected offer of employment in a Beacon Hill mansion. For Matty, it's the beginning of a painful awakening. But, before summer's end, she will choose hope over despair." --From publisher's description.
