Description: Patrice Williams was happy living in Georgia with her grandmother, then her mother lured her to Chicago and ended up in jail. Living in the projects, Patrice is an easy target for everyone. Not only won't she stand up for herself, she cares about her grades -- unlike her classmates. But that draws the attention of Monty Freeman, another eighth grader who asks Patrice to tutor his little brother. When Monty becomes her guardian angel, Patrice begins to think something stronger than friendship might be growing between them. Still, nothing will stop her from applying for a scholarship at prestigious Dogwood Academy -- except her mother.  (208 pages) Young Adult

Ashay says,"I think young girls will find this an intersesting story. It deals with many elements of inner city life including an incarerated parent and everyday struggle.  Yet, the character still hopes to attend a prestigius African American school in Mississippi.  A good read, add it to your liblary."
