Publisher's Summary

Andre Anderson is a black teenager with a dream. Although he loves to play basketball and laugh with his friends, he also loves to write and wants to make his mark on the world. One summer when he is assigned to do a magazine article about race, he creates a passionate and explosive piece. Soon, he is the target of racists who brutally attack him, putting him in the hospital. With his hand and dream broken, he must figure out how to put his life back together in spite of the anger and injustice he now sees around him.

What the Critics Say

"This will engage unpracticed older readers, and it may prompt them to reexamine some of their own racial attitudes." (Booklist)
