Summer, 1958. After her father's death, Ruth Robb's family moves from New York City to Atlanta. Ruth quickly figures out she can be Jewish or she can be popular, but she can't be both, and decides to hide her religion. Before she knows it, she is falling for the handsome and charming Davis and sipping Cokes with him and his friends at the all-white, all-Christian Club. Attending services at the local synagogue every week, Ruth meets Max, who is serious and intense about the fight for social justice. Caught between two worlds, two religions, and two boys... until a violent hate crime brings the different parts of Ruth's life into sharp conflict.
