Jade believes she must get out of her poor neighborhood if she's ever going to succeed. Her mother tells her to take advantage of every opportunity that comes her way. And she has. She accepted a scholarship to a mostly-white private school and even Saturday morning test prep opportunities. But some opportunities feel more demeaning than helpful. Like an invitation to join Women to Women, a mentorship program for "at-risk" girls. Except really, it's for black girls. From "bad" neighborhoods. And just because Maxine, her college-graduate mentor, is black doesn't mean she understands Jade. And maybe there are some things Jade could show these successful women about the real world and finding ways to make a real difference.

    This book is really inspirational. A girl named Jade gets into a college where there are mainly white people. Jade joins a program that connects young black teens with older and successful black women. Jade finds it difficult to connect with her older woman (Maxine) because Maxine grew up wealthy. I enjoyed reading this book because I'm white, and I learned a lot about diversity in this book. It wasn't my type of book, but I still enjoyed reading it. I recommend this book to mainly the older kids, but I feel like anyone could read it if someone explained it to them.
