Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now
Davis' YA debut is an honest and unflinching look at racism, religion, emotional abuse, and mental illness. Tiffany Sly is a young African-American girl whose life hasn’t been safe or normal for some time. After losing her mother to cancer, she’s sent to Los Angeles to live with the biological father she’s never met. Suddenly, Tiffany has a white stepmother, four biracial sisters, and a father, Anthony Stone who’s strict and abusive. She has no idea how to fit in or how to deal with the bigotry she encounters at her new private school. When another man claims he’s Tiffany’s real dad, her world starts to fall apart all over again. The only thing that makes her life bearable is her friendship with Marcus McKinney, the strange boy who lives across the street.
