Minority of One
Farrington High, No. 3eBook - 2014
Neill is a walking statistic; Black, teenaged, and gay. He was strong enough to come out to his family in 8th grade and sensitive enough to know just how much that truth hurt the older brother he worships. He is also intelligent enough to fulfill his family's dream that he become a doctor - a dream he doesn't share. But after disappointing his family once, he can't imagine doing so again.Sheila is young and white, a former poor little rich girl (now just poor) facing life with a mother whose continued infidelity caused her father's suicide. When Sheila arrives at her new home in Chicago's inner city she finds herself one of only a handful of white students. She sees no hope of ever being happy again.At first glance the only thing Sheila and Neill have in common is the on-going affair between her mother and his older, married brother. But invisible ties draw these two outliers together. When Sheila's mother is found dead, and Neill's brother is arrested for the crime, they have to become a team to keep the real killer from going unpunished and to make their own unique futures.Minority of One is a story for anyone who has ever felt friendless and alone, the only one of their kind. It's for everyone who ever found someone special, someone willing to go to the mat to help uncover the truth about themselves and find their rightful place in the world.
