As if the students of Scrub Harbor High don't have enough to worry about: Christine is quickly losing her friend Georgie to Ricardo; Nelson can't connect with Shaquanda; Adam's role as the new kid is tougher than he thought; and O'Neill's controversial poem has electrified the school while making life unbearable for his football-star brother, Quincy.
But now a group of Scrub Harbor citizens are trying to change the town's name to the "classier" Folly Bay, and their crusade has filtered down to their kids. Suddenly, the school is divided into the rich-kid "Follys" and the poorer "Scrubs," with everyone else caught in the middle. How can you answer the question "Who am I?" when your town can't even make tip its mind? Will anyone emerge from the battle intact?
In ten interlocking stories, Ellen Wittlinger addresses the rarely discussed issues of class and identity that inform so much of teenage life. What's in a Name is a bold report from the cutting edge ofteenage concerns.
