Cameron lives in Brooklyn with her mom, who works at a nail salon, and has never met her father. When her mom loses her job and they're forced to move to the projects where they stand out as white people, Cameron learns about herself and faces changing notions of identity. The characters are limited and stereotyped, the writing seems forced, and the plot is interesting enough to keep you reading but disappointing.

Erin Sterling I'm good! Grad school is fun. I wish I were in NY more often--my parents have moved to Florida for part of the year so I'm not in NJ as much. How are you??
