True Believer by Virginia Euwer Wolff

LaVaughn is 15 and learning what a teacher meant by "we will rise to the occasion that is life." A bright girl trying to understand life in the ghetto with all its inherent hardships and road blocks...trying to maintain old and new relationships that are divergent in nature...staying focused on a course to a college education...dealing with her mother and her relationships...all happening around her first love, a love that is a hard love.
