This book was about a girl named Winnie, short for Winifred, who's best friend moved away. They had lived on the same street, but her friend, Iggie, moved to Tokyo. The people who moved into Iggie's old house were Black/African-American, not many people around where they lived were black. One of their nearby neighbors, Mrs. Landon, doesn't like the Gerbers and wants them to leave all because of their skin color. Winnie doesn't want them to move, they're her friends. Mrs. Landon is having people sign petitions and everything, Winnie thinks that that is crazy, why would she want them to leave? Mrs. Landon said that people should move away because sooner or later people like the Gerbers would be everywhere, she meant people with people of color like the Gerbers. In the end Mrs. Landon and her family ended up moving away and everything turned out fine.
