"Sure, maybe the urban Boston wouldn't be completely socially aware, but they'd at least have some idea of how to treat us like we were all the same. So, we were packing up our bags, and I was going to a new school, and I'd do fine as long as I stayed away from those white boys."

Robin Skye was packing her bags and (hopefully) moving away from the racial discrimination she's had to face in Georgia. Of course she was guided by her mother and father to stay away from the source of the racism - white boys. But, River just couldn't stay away from her.
NOTE - - - do not read this if you know you won't agree on the ways that this book touches on racism because you will get your feelings hurt !!
