Black and White

Paul Volponi

Alternating viewpoints tell this story of Marcus and Eddie, best friends and stars of their high school basketball team. They don’t focus on race—Marcus is black, and Eddie is white—but when they get in trouble for a robbery, they find out how much the rest of the world does.


“It is about dealing with the consequences of your actions and friendships. The novel is for older boys; it tells two sides of the same story. It is a realistic, unglamorous view of legal consequences.” -an enthusiastic reader like you
