Until then, blacks and whites didnt sit next to one another in a public space or eat in the same restaurants, and they certainly didnt go to school together.. . What he did not realize until he began to meet these new students was just how deeply ingrained his own prejudices were and how those prejudices had developed in him despite the fact that prior to starting sixth grade, he had actually never known any black people.

Booklist called this "a beautifully written coming-of-age recollection from the era of racial desegregation." 275 pp.
