A moving portrayal of an interracial romance…

In this impressively moving YA romance, Swann narrates the love story of an interracial couple who struggle against the barriers erected by family and friends in 80s conservative society. Sensitive and obedient Cindy Wilson is in love with sensible Mike Ryan but is afraid to come out in open because of her parents’ reserved outlook toward interracial relationships. Mike, who is least bothered by peer and family pressure, would do anything to get his relationship accepted even if it means risking his own life. With a keen eye for detail and a thorough understanding of a horde of conflicting teenager emotions, Swann weaves an intricate romance as she explores the emotions and conflicts of her teenager protagonists, as well as the reservations and racial issues of 80s conservative society. Filled with passion and conflict, Swann’s tale will appeal equally to teenagers and parents.
