About the Book

Sixth-grader Carter Young didn't expect a fight to break out at the first lacrosse game of the season. He also didn't expect to get a postcard from his birth mom. What happens next will make Carter deeply examine his outlook on family, adoption and race. As a half-white and half-black adopted kid, will he have to choose sides? Will he ever get the answers that he's looking for about his roots? With lovable puppy Willow at his side, Carter navigates through the joyful and thorny parts of life in suburban Maryland.
