Award-winning YA author Brandy Colbert's debut middle-grade novel about the only two Black girls in town who discover a collection of hidden journals revealing shocking secrets of the past. Beach-loving surfer Alberta has been the only Black girl in town for years. Alberta's best friend, Laramie, is the closest thing she has to a sister, but there are some things even Laramie can't understand. When the bed and breakfast across the street finds new owners, Alberta is ecstatic to learn the family is black-and they have a 12-year-old daughter just like her. Alberta is positive she and the new girl, Edie, will be fast friends. But while Alberta loves being a California girl, Edie misses her native Brooklyn and finds it hard to adapt to small-town living. When the girls discover a box of old journals in Edie's attic, they team up to figure out exactly who's behind them and why they got left behind. Soon they discover shocking and painful secrets of the past and learn that nothing is quite what it seems.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Brandy ColbertPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 03/10/2020ISBN: 9780316456388Pages: 368Weight: 0.92lbsSize: 7.70h x 5.60w x 1.30dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 12/01/2019 pg. 162Publishers Weekly 01/20/2020Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 03/01/2020Booklist 03/15/2020 pg. 64School Library Journal 03/20/2020 pg. 1Shelf Awareness 03/24/2020Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 508494 / Only Black Girls in TownReading Level: 4.4 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 9
