Things have changed since Raedawn and Vince started going out and the racial boundaries in town have slipped a bit. But when Dune, who never took sides, disappears, Raedawn is determined to find out where he has gone—or what happened to him. Fighting against ignorance and hate, they track Dune down and find he is in more trouble than they thought and that nothing is black and white.
"Without sacrificing story line or writing down to her intended audience, Olsen manages to tell a story applicable for older teens with low reading levels."

"The cover will attract students as it has a large marijuana leaf in a shadow image - hint of what the mystery is about."
