Jeremiah Roselind is an intelligent black teenage boy who has to attend a fancy prep school. He bumps into Ellie Eisen, a white girl, in the hallway, and they are immediately attracted to one another. Disapproving glances, whispering voices, snide remarks -it isn't the reactions from other people that tear this young couple apart before their relationship has a real chance to grow, but a tragic event. This is an interesting, well-written story about interracial dating. I was saddened by the ending.

    A reviewer

    Okay, I admit. My teacher made me read this, part of the reason why i do not like it. But it wasn't as great as it could be. i hated the ending. way too confusing if u ask me. But i guess if there was more going on, it could've been so much better.

    This is a good book

    'If You Come Softly', By: Jacqueline Woodson. This book in my opinion is not as good as her other books I've read including 'Hush'. This book is about a girl named Ellie and a boy named Miah and how they have to deal with people looking at how different they are, that is their color. They have to fight family members, friends, and peers to keep there relationship going. She fights her mother after finding out that she likes a colored-boy that attends the same school. They fight constantly to see each other after school, and during the day. Tehy hoped eventually everyone would accept their relationship and move on because they believe that its true love.
