Embarrassed by her mother's all-too-public civil rights
activities in the fall of 1963, 17-year-old Beryl Rosinsky
flees her home in Washington, DC, and begins college at the
University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Here, in the
segregated South, she means to reject her destiny as her
mother's daughter by conforming and fitting in. But she
finds herself in a world of uncomfortable paradoxes. Strict
rules for women don't apply to men. Southern good manners
don't extend to the black girl who lives alone on the other
side of the dorm. Soon Beryl begins to appreciate her
family's values -- and learn who she really is.
