Moving from a place filled with violence, drugs, and broken homes to a picture-perfect suburbia isnt as simple as it seems. This memoir of Brandon Fothergills coming of age details his last year of high school, which erupts into a civil rights march.

The violence of the streets is traded for the prejudice of a community unprepared to accept people of another race as their neighbors. This new peerless environment reverses his role in school, falling from an above average student to a teen more concerned with finding peers and having fun. Standing Up balances the weighty changes Brandon faces with the humor and levity of teenage shenanigans, conveying the freshness of a life just starting.

This firsthand account of prejudice and possibility will imbue you with hope for continued progress toward friendship among all races and unity strengthened by societys contrasting individuals.
