Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—High school junior Jade is an "at-risk" student from a rough neighborhood in Portland, OR. She is also a talented collage artist, and she attends an elite private school on scholarship. More than anything, she wants to go on a study abroad week offered at her school to use her Spanish skills. Instead, she is given an invitation to join Woman to Woman, a mentorship program for young women like her: poor and black. Her mentor, Maxine, is from a more privileged background, and Jade doesn't see what she can learn from her. But in spite of her early resistance to Maxine, Jade begins to open up and gain confidence, and, eventually, she is able to express the importance of her family, her community, and her art. The two strong female characters and the ways in which they struggle with and support each other form the center of this tale. Most young people will relate to Jade's search to find her voice and learn to advocate for herself in appropriate ways. The lack of a romantic lead may leave some young teen readers disappointed, but there is a real, refreshing strength in a fully fleshed-out female character whose story is her own. This is a memorable novel that demonstrates that a happy ending doesn't require a romantic subplot. VERDICT This unique and thought-provoking title offers a nuanced meditation on race, privilege, and intersectionality. A first purchase for YA collections.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

Tous les jours, Jade quitte son quartier de Portland pour se rendre au lycée privé de l'autre côté de la ville, celui où vont les blancs et les noirs de milieu aisé mais aussi quelques filles comme Jade : noires, pauvres et brillantes. Elle ne s'y sent pas la bienvenue, loin de là. Jade se pose alors la question de sa vie : vaut-il mieux vivre la vie toute tracée qui l'attend ou défier son destin en entrant dans un monde dont elle ignore les codes ? --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, poignant, important
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 10, 2018
First of all, a moment of appreciation for this cover. I absolutely adore the boldness and simplicity!

Secondly, a moment of appreciation for the main character, Jade. It's so refreshing to read a protagonist who says what's on their mind. She is confident; she knows what she wants and who she wants to be.

I loved every moment she spoke her mind, whether she was confronting her white friend who didn't think Jade's discrimination was race-based (it totally was) to speaking her mind to her teachers and her mentor when things weren't going the way they should be.

Jade is a bold main character who jumped off the page and I loved her personality. I also loved that she wasn't ashamed of her passions: she didn't downplay her love of collaging; she was proud of it. Her art was so important to the story and I loved that.

I'm not sure why there aren't more people talking about this book. I happened to spot it in a bookshop and fell for the cover, and it's a great read - and another important one, about a poor black girl at a rich white school. I loved this.
