Narrator Prentice Onayemi makes the most of the humor in this modern-day story of race, youth, and masculinity. What if you were the one of the only white students in an all-black high school? This is David Greenfeld's reality in Boston in the 1990s. His is a reversal in the traditional angst-filled story of high school awkwardness. David makes an unlikely friend in Marlon, and as they grow closer, his eyes are opened to uncomfortable truths about race in twentieth-century America. Onayemi's casual tone and conversational delivery of dialogue capture the teenagers he's portraying. The differences in how society views these boys as they become men is a lesson for listeners in what makes us different and what keeps us together.
