Summary Note Eleven-year-old, piano-prodigy Isabella's parents are divorced, so she has to switch lives every week. One week she's with her dad, who's black, his girlfriend and her son living in a fancy house where they are one of the only black families in the neighbourhood. The next week she's with her mum, who's white, and her boyfriend in a small, not-so-fancy house that she loves. Isabella has always felt pulled between two worlds and now that her parents are divorced, it seems their fights are even worse. And when her parents, who both get engaged at the same time, get in their biggest fight ever, Isabella doesn't just feel divided, she feels ripped in two. It seems like nothing can bring Isabella's family together again - until the worst happens. Isabella and her stepbrother are stopped by the police. A cell phone is mistaken for a gun. And shots are fired.
