Hakeem Randall can't take it anymore. First he learns that his father is sick and that his parents can no longer afford their home. Then he finds out he has to leave his friends at Bluford High and move in with his uncle in faraway Detroit--where he has to share a bedroom with his moody, secretive cousin Savon. Once childhood friends, he and Savon have since grown apart--and they're headed for a confrontation that promises to change their lives forever.
