Middle Grade/Young Adult
Maizon At Blue Hill
Maizon Singh is one of the few black girls at an all-white boarding school. She doesn’t feel like she belongs there and misses Madison Street and the family and friends she left behind.
Where it takes place:
In Connecticut in the fictionalized town of Canturbury.
Where I wrote it:
In the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn, New York and in San Francisco, California.
Why I wrote it:
I wanted to write Maizon’s side of the story and about what happened when she went away to boarding school. It was the first book I wrote that really dealt with racism.
