Being a teenager is tough enough. But imagine starting freshman year at a new high school that's not just in a new city, but a new country. That's life for 14-year old Thandi Sobukwe. When her father is transferred from his position as a professor at a Capetown, South Africa univ...ersity to Buena Vista, California, Thandi says goodbye to friends, family and favorite places and hello to self-doubt, rejection and cultural confusion. Everything from the way she looks to the way she speaks, and even the way she thinks is questioned, mocked or simply misunderstood. Thandi's sruck between a rock and a hard place. She's struggling to be comfortable in her skin. But between her California girl dreams, ambivalent feelings about Black American culture, and sensitivity about the ethnic background that she thinks makes her stand out too much, she doesn't seem to fit. Thandi's facing a real dilemma: How can she be true to yourself when you're trying to discover who you are?
