Donte and his brother, Trey, are biracial—Donte takes on his mother’s dark skin, while Trey resembles his father, passing as white. When they enroll at Middlefield Prep, Trey blends into the crowd while Donte is subject to hate and ridicule by nearly everyone. Alan, captain of the fencing team, is the worst of them all—finally his actions get Donte arrested at school, and Donte seeks justice. He begins training with a former Olympic fencer at the Boys and Girls Club à la Karate Kid. And when the time comes, Donte faces his oppressor like the champion he’s become. A compact story of identity and equality.
