* Review is of an advanced reader copy

A semi interesting novel about school integration and friendship. Set in New York City in 1971, The Long Ride does a good job of portraying the positive and negative effects of school integration to an audience most likely unfamiliar with the concept. Additionally, author Marina Tamar Budhos has accurately captured the changing dynamics many friendships face as tweens become teens and their interests and lifestyles began to veer in different directions.
