9780007100170: Come A Stranger (Tillerman Series, Book 5)

The fifth book in Cynthia Voigt’s acclaimed Tillerman Series, Mina Smiths, black daughter of the local minister, must learn to accept herself.

Mina Smiths, a schoolfriend of Dicey Tillerman’s, is expelled from summer dance school. Is it because she’s black? Overwhelmed with the misery of failure and rejection, she turns to Tamer Shipp, the temporary minister at her father’s church – he understands her feelings, even her feelings about him…

A strong story about identity and self-belief, and the importance of following your heart.
