But Dee isnt so sure.From the moment she steps on the school bus, she feels out of place. Dee is welcomed with stares and whispers. None of the other kids in her English class have even heard of Langston Hughes, her favorite poet, and lacrosse, not double-dutch, is the sport of choice. And when it comes to trying out for the lacrosse team, not even Dees fanciest footwork can help her. But before Dee resigns herself to the sidelines--literally--a series of disturbing events begins to unfold. Can Dee find a way to make Wexford her home without compromising herself?
