What if there were two students who decided to experiment with interracial dating in 1967? That's exactly what happens when a black girl and a white boy take a course in Senior Sociology Seminar at a Christian university in southeastern Wisconsin. They decide to do a project for the semester where they will engage in a fake dating scenario. Interracial dating at that time is completely taboo. The reader gets to follow the couple throughout the course of the semester and experience all the racial bigotry, insults, threats, and prejudice from family, friends, and strangers. The girl's father refuses to acknowledge their relationship and forbids his daughter from seeing the white boy. An unforeseen development occurs that the couple never expected. Just when the couple thought their romance was over, an unusual twist occurs at the end of the story that surprises everyone.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
