Summary
"A feast of a read... I finished A Good Neighborhood in a single sitting. Yes, it's that good." —Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of LightIn Oak Knoll, a verdant, tight-knit North Carolina neighborhood, professor of forestry and ecology Valerie Alston-Holt is raising her bright and talented biracial son, Xavier, who's headed to college in the fall. All is well until the Whitmans—an apparently traditional family with new money and a secretly troubled teenaged daughter—raze the house and trees next door to build themselves a showplace.With little in common except a property line, these two very different families quickly find themselves at odds: first, over an historic oak tree in Valerie's yard, and soon after, the blossoming romance between their two teenagers.A Good Neighborhood asks big questions about life in America today—what does it mean to be a good neighbor? How do we live alongside each other when we don't see eye to eye?—as it explores the effects of class, race, and heartrending love in a story that's as provocative as it is powerful.A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press "While Faulkner's story veers off into the traditional grotesquerie of Southern Gothic literature, Fowler's culminates with injustices that are painfully easy to imagine because they continue to be a part of our contemporary lived experience." — Washington Post "A timely story about what happens when we fail to consider how our actions affect others and the tragedy that can befall us if we can't coexist with those whose values are different from our own." — Atlanta Journal
