They live on the same block on Madison Street in Brooklyn, and they’re always together. But the summer they are eleven, Margaret’s father dies. Then Maizon is offered a scholarship to a boarding school, where, she’s afraid, she might be the only black student. The girls can’t go back to last summer, before everything changed. But can they keep their promise to be best friends forever?

In The Dear One by Jacqueline Woodson, Feni is furious when she finds out that her mother has agreed to take a fifteen-year-old pregnant girl into their home until her baby is born.

Her worst fears are confirmed when Rebecca arrives: she is mean, bossy, and uneducated. Feni decided she will have nothing to do with her. But it’s hard not to be curious about a girl so close to her own age who seems so different…
