Product description

Think Romeo and Juliet had problems? This is Juliet and Juliet across the colour bar. “Lie #1: I’m not afraid. Lie #2: I’m sure I’m doing the right thing. Lie #3: I don’t care what they think of me.” (Yeah, right.) It’s 1959. The battle for civil rights is raging. However much she lies to herself, hate is what Sarah expects to find at Jefferson High: a previously all-white school. No one wants a black girl like Sarah there. Not the Governor. Not the teachers. Certainly not Linda: the biggest hater of all. Linda is the daughter of the town’s most vocal racist activist. Sarah knows she utterly despises her. Or does she? Amid all this hate, what neither Sarah nor Linda expect to find (bring on even more lies) is love…
