They did not make the rules, they only fell in love despite them.
The first moment I saw her standing in front of the class waiting for Mr. Johnson, I did not pay any attention. Just another white girl I thought to myself, but as the minutes ticked by and I continued looking at her because she made the time pass, I suddenly realized I am uncontrollably interested in her.
Seventeen-year-old Chrissie is accepted at The Christian Academy, an exclusive private school.
Her father goes through a great deal of trouble to secure a scholarship here for Chrissie, and in the privacy of his own home he sighs with relief because now his daughter no longer has to go to school with so many black kids.
She auditions as backup singer for ÉLastique, a school band, and the lead singer is an eighteen-year-old, black boy, named Vincent.
