The New York Times bestselling book that stirred up controversy and got readers talking—and passionately debating—Eric Jerome Dickey's bold portrait of racial identity and subtle understanding of sexual intimacy.
When Jordan Greene moves from the deep south to New York City, he finds more than he ever bargained for. After sharings a ride with a vivacious young white girl, a romance grows between the unlikely pair—much to the chagrin of Jordan's friends and family. Love on the other side of the color bar forces him to examine his own values and makes him stand up against what everyone expects him to do. In this brightly entertaining and emotionally complex novel, Dickey again demonstrates why he is one of the hottest voices in African-American fiction today.
