Summary

Over one summer, seventeen year old Mika experiences prejudice towards her mixed-race family, the dementia of her estranged grandmother, and a new romance with rich-kid, Dylan.

Mika Arlington has her perfect summer all planned out, but the arrival of both her estranged grandmother and too-cool Dylan are going to make some very big waves in her life.

Told with Natalie Whipple's signature whip-smart wit and warmth, this is a story about prejudice, growing up and the true meaning of sticking by your family.

NOTE : Mika's mother is Japanese, her father is American. Her grandmother did not condone her parents' marriage and uses extremely racist terms towards both them and her.
NOTE : Mika and Dylan have sex at the end but it is not described in any way
