Kate Schrum | 8 comments Hi Everyone. I work at a public library and I have a patron trying to find a book her siblings read in either elementary school or Jr. high in the 1970s.

The book is about two African American girls going to school together. Girl A comes from a (more) affluent family, lives in a nice neighborhood, her parents prize education above all else.
Girl B comes from a single parent household, and while she isn't neglected at all, she is often left to her own devices.
Throughout the book, Girl B ends up becoming friends with the "wrong crowd," so to speak.

Any information you can offer would be great.

Here's the Google Books preview of The Friends by Rosa Guy - Rainbowheart's suggestion:

Kate, please add some of those plot details to your header, which is vague. Use the little edit link.

Since Kate posted recently - Kate, is this Solved?

Kate Schrum | 8 comments Unfortunately, I never heard back from the patron that had asked about it. I've got it all on a sticky note just in case! Feel free to move it to the "we may never know" folder.
