Savannah Howard sacrificed her high school social life to make sure she got into a top college. Her sites were set on an HBCU, but when she is accepted to the ivy-covered walls of Wooddale University on a full ride, how can she say no?
Wooddale is far from the perfectly manicured community it sells on its brochures, though. Savannah has barely unpacked before she comes face-to-face with microagressions stemming from racism and elitism. Then, Clive Wilmington's statue is vandalized with blackface. The prime suspect? Lucas Cunningham, Wooddale's most popular student and son to a local prominent family. Soon, Savannah is unearthing the hidden secrets of Wooddale's racist history. But what's the price for standing up for what is right? And will telling the truth about Wooddale's past cost Savannah her own future?
What is your favorite scene from Required Reading for the Disenfranchised Freshman?
The scene where Savannah returns to her hometown and runs into her best friend, B’onca, is my favorite scene because it shows how Savannah has changed and so has the neighborhood which she left in some ways. It’s a realization to Savannah that there’s no escaping these transitional moments in her life.
