"A provocative, absorbing read." - People 'A feast of a read... I finished A Good Neighborhood in a single sitting. Yes, it's that good.' -Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light In Oak Knoll, a verdant, tight-knit North Carolina neighborhood, professor of forestry and ecology Valerie Alston-Holt is raising her bright and talented biracial son, Xavier, who's headed to college in the fall. All is well until the Whitmans-a family with new money and a secretly troubled teenage daughter-raze the house and trees next door to build themselves a showplace. With little in common except a property line, these two families quickly find themselves at odds: first, over an historic oak tree in Valerie's yard, and soon after, the blossoming romance between their two teenagers. A Good Neighborhood asks big questions about life in America today-what does it mean to be a good neighbor? How do we live alongside each other when we don't see eye to eye?-as it explores the effects of class, race, and heartrending love in a story that's as provocative as it is powerful.
