Grades 10-12. Soho Teen.


Uly would rather watch old Westerns with his new girlfriend, Sallie, than get involved in his school's messy politics. His older sister Regina is fed up with the way white school-body presidential candidate Leona Walls talks about black students. Regina decides to run against Leona-- and convinces Uly to be her campaign manager. Sallie has no interest in managing her sister's campaign, but after their parents' death, Leona is practically her only family. Even after Leona is accused of running a racist campaign that targets the school's students of color, Sallie wants to give her sister the benefit of the doubt. Can Uly and Sallie must navigate sibling loyalty and romantic love during the campaign?
