If You Come Softly
After meeting at their private school in New York, fifteen-year-old Jeremiah, who is black, and Ellie, who is white, fall in love and then try to cope with people's reactions. Woodson's sensitive and lyrical books reveal and give a voice to outsiders often invisible to mainstream America.
