Product Description

When a clerical error allows the admittance of the first African-American girl into a segregated New England prep school, its headmaster is unprepared for a confrontation with the student, a brilliant and intractable fifteen-year-old.

Editorial Reviews

During the late Sixties, even as talk of integration and sexual revolution rages, the ornery headmaster of the reputation-rich, cash-poor Goode School resists efforts at coeducation. Then, through an oversight, the school admits a very smart black girl. Lots of anticipation for this first novel, as Cooke's story collection, The Bostons, won the 2002 PEN/Robert Bingham award for a first book. A good bet for most collections; with a three-city tour and a reading group guide.
