Blue Hill is beautiful and Maizon has excellent teachers, small classes, and a friendly roommate. Yet something is missing. What is it that makes white people strange to her, that makes other black students threatening and safe at the same time? "We have to stick together, Maizon," one black girl says. "This school isn't about us—it's about them."
Maizon's not sure she belongs at Blue Hill after all. She worries about letting Grandma down. What if she doesn't succeed here? Can she go back to her old life on Madison Street?
After winning a scholarship to an academically challenging boarding school, Maizon finds herself one of only five blacks there and wonders if she will ever fit in. Sequel to "Last Summer with Maizon."
