This is historical fiction at its best. A blend of past and present tells the story of the Tulsa race riot of 1921. A tied-in mystery keeps the story moving, but it was the history of Greenwood that kept me from putting this book down.

This is the kind of book I wish I had as a teenager!

Published: Simon Pulse - March 3rd, 2015

Etta is tired of not fitting in - not gay enough for her lesbian friends, not sick enough to be officially anorexic, not tiny enough to be a competitive ballerina. But things change when she meets Bianca, a girl in her therapy group with a serious vocal gift and a Broadway dream. Etta's is a fierce and unapologetic voice, telling a story about passion, dedication, and staying true to yourself.
