From the New York Times bestselling authors of I'm Not Dying with You Tonight comes a heartfelt story about two teen girls—one black, one white—whose friendship is tested by an act of rebellion against systemic racism


With challenges undermining their friendship, Eleanor and Chanel must navigate their senior year in a time of uncertainty. When the cheer squad decides to take a knee at the season's first football game, their act of rebellion has disastrous consequences. Chanel, who is black, is singled out as the ringleader and is the only student suspended from school. Eleanor, however, starts a relationship with star quarterback Three, who may or may not have her back as other students protest their school's actions. A bittersweet, sometime humorous, but always compelling look at issues of friendship, privilege, sports, and race.
