A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler
Therese Anne Fowler is known for her historical fiction, but in A Good Neighborhood, she brings us to the present, where she tackles a very modern morality tale. When Brad Whitman's family moves into a tight knit neighborhood in North Carolina, his beautiful daughter immediately catches the eye of Xavier Alston-Holt, whose backyard abuts the Whitman's. No problem, right? Except Xavier is black, being raised by a single mother, and Brad has other ideas about the sort of man that his stepdaughter should be with. A Good Neighborhood is about race, privilege, and perception. A novel that begs to be discussed.
