1st ed.
In 1975, Tempestt Saville and her family "move on up" to Lakeland: an exclusive neighborhood for wealthy blacks carved out of a Chicago ghetto. Behind a ten foot, ivy covered fence sits a community with every amenity, including its own section of Lake Michigan. Whatever lies outside that fence - whatever the world tells black people they can't do or be - doesn't apply to the residents of Lakeland. What is shut out by that fence is 35th street. Before a month has passed at Lakeland, Tempestt will witness a death, cause an arrest, and start a chain of events that will send 35th street up in flames.
