And Jade has: every day she rides the bus away from her friends and to the private school where feels like an outsider, but where she has plenty of opportunities. There’s also at least one opportunity that she doesn’t really welcome: Woman to Woman, a mentorship program she joins on the promise of a scholarship. Just because her mentor is black and graduated from the same high school doesn’t mean she understands where Jade is coming from.
