Drew Ellis goes to the prestigious Riverdale Academy Day School, but unlike a lot of his more privileged classmates, he feels like he has to work way harder and he still might not get the same opportunities that they do. While a lot of his fellow students live in enormous mansions, Drew lives alone with his grandmother (who has to work almost constantly to provide for him). He also knows that no matter how good his grades are or which school he attends, most people are only going to see the colour of his skin. Of course, his friends Jordan and Liam have their own problems to deal with.
This is a companion novel to New Kid, which I haven’t read. The good news is that you don’t need to have read that book to enjoy this one, but I suspect I would have gotten even more out of this if I’d also read the first book in the series.
Full review on my blog.
