DOES FITTING IN HAVE TO MEAN SELLING OUT?
 
In October 1975, while most teens are worried about their Happy Days Halloween costumes,
Tiphanie Jayne Baker has bigger problems. Her parents have just decided to uproot the family to the ritzy suburb of Brent Hills, Colorado, and now she’s the only Black girl at a high school full of Barbies. But the longer Tiphanie stays in her new neighborhood, the more her ties to her old community start to fray. Now that nowhere feels like home, exactly where does she belong?

Praise for Finding My Place

“A well-told story that will hold readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The story, with its accurate portrayal of the period and realistic depictions of friendships and family issues, is interesting and enjoyable. The well-developed characters confront their own stereotypes and perceptions of race, learning something about one another and about themselves.” —School Library Journal

"A straightforward, welltold story with characters that ring true, and the bittersweet ending will remind readers that friendships sometimes come at a cost." —Publishers Weekly
