Eye-Opening Story About Friendship, Differences, and Finding the Way Home!
Two worlds collide in this thought-provoking story about privilege and prejudice in the suburbs.
Jaya, Maria, and Lola are just like the other eighth-grade girls in wealthy, suburban Meadowbrook, New Jersey. They like the same music, crave the same fashions, and speak the same slang. But there is one big difference: they are the daughters of maids and nannies. Although they go to school with the very same kids whose families their mothers work for, their worlds are not the same. When Jaya's mother is accused of theft, tensions about immigrants start to erupt. Suddenly, Jaya, Maria, and Lola find themselves tested as outsiders and as friends. Will each girl find a place for herself in a town that maintains the illusion of perfect harmony only by denying their right to exist?
