Description

ItÆs 1955 and fourteen-year-old Emily WinterÆs promising start at Bromley, a posh, academically-challenging Manhattan girlsÆ school, threatens to turn sour when her new friend Phoebe Barrett joins an anti-Semitic club founded by the popular and snobby Cressida Whitcroft.
But how can Emily stay angry with Phoebe, who shares EmilyÆs fascination with knights and the Middle Ages, when Phoebe has put herself on a dangerously stringent diet and is sinking into an ever-deeper obsession with losing weight?
In a story about the search for identity and the triumph of friendship over bigotry, Emily discovers a knack for leadership as she copes with PhoebeÆs snubs, a newborn brother, a know-it-all classmate addicted to true-love magazines, a whiz kid who thinks heÆs James Dean, a fifteen-year-old fencer with an intriguing scar, and a surprise assignment that brings everyone together and helps banish prejudice at Bromley.
