Ten-year-old Brendan is a budding scientist and has decided to start collecting rocks during the summer. For the most part, he is comfortable in his milk-chocolate colored skin. He has a good pal, and he knows what he wants to do. He can ignore the racist taunts of a few older kids. He can ignore it, that is, until he meets his long absent grandfather who runs the local rock hound club. Now Brendan has to find out why his grandfather lives so close, and yet has never been to his house. It is a book of complexity about society and multi-racial families. Brendan has a white mother and black father. He has one grandmother (father’s mother) who stays close to the family. While his maternal grandfather cut himself off. The questions raised are almost as old as the rocks Brendan wants to collect, but fortunately, for Brendan, people can speak to give answers.
