A Kirkus Reviews "Best of 2018" Pick

"A love letter to the intricacies of family and multitudinous black girlhood." -- Kirkus, starred review
"A stunning tapestry of texture and culture." - Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin
"You'll wish you were friends with Tasia Quirk. - Emery Lord, author of When We Collided
"This book is an emotional touchdown." - Lily Anderson, author of Undead Girl Gang

Tasia Quirk is young, Black, and fabulous. She's a senior, she's got great friends, and a supportive and wealthy family. She even plays football as the only girl on her private high school's team.

But when she catches her mamma trying to stuff a mysterious box in the closet, her identity is suddenly called into question. Now Tasia's determined to unravel the lies that have overtaken her life. Along the way, she discovers what family and forgiveness really mean, and that her answers don't come without a fee. An artsy bisexual boy from the Valley could help her find them--but only if she stops fighting who she is, beyond the color of her skin.
