When LaVaughn hears that Jody is moving back into her housing project, she can hardly believe it. They were best friends when they were children, and now he's -- well, gorgeous. But why doesn't he return her affection? In this eloquent sequel to Make Lemonade, author Virginia Euwer Wolff explores gender identity, class, religion, and love with her penetrating intelligence and gleaming literary style.
When LaVaughn was little, the obstacles in her life didn't seem so bad. School was simple, boys were friends. Everything made sense. Now she's 15 and the obstacles aren't going away anymore, and the boy who's a miracle in her life acts as if he's in love with her. Only he's not in love with her.
Following on from "Make Lemonade", this is a gripping second instalment, suitable for readers of 12 and over, in which LaVaughn and the others must deal with a new set of circumstances common to young adults everywhere.
