Publisher Comments:

Jaya, Maria, and Lola are just like the other eighth-grade girls in the wealthy suburb of Meadowbrook, New Jersey. They want to go to the spring dance, they love spending time with their best friends after school, sharing frappand#233;s and complaining about the other kids. But thereand#8217;s one big difference: all three are daughters of maids and nannies. And they go to school with the very same kids whose families their mothers work for. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;That difference grows even biggerand#8212;and more painfuland#8212;when Jayaand#8217;s mother is accused of theft and Jayaand#8217;s small, fragile world collapses. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;When tensions about immigrants start to erupt, fracturing this perfect, serene suburb, all three girls are tested, as outsidersand#8212;and as friends. Each of them must learn to find a place for themselves in a town that barely notices they exist. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Marina Budhos gives us a heartbreaking and eye-opening story of friendship, belonging, and finding the way home.
