||Best friends forever, it seems so simple. Middle school is difficult enough, but Marlee and Lisa find themselves in a stressful situation that could be dangerous. They are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. In the late 1950ís, Little Rock, Arkansas and many southern Communities are trying to come to grips with the Federal school integration laws. Everyone is taking sides, teachers, parents, students, and politicians. Two best friends forever-Faithful through thick and thin. One Black, one white. Friends forever regardless of color of skin.
