Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley
Set during the Civil Rights era, Sarah is one of the first black students at previously all-white Jefferson High. No one wants her there, especially Linda, daughter of the town’s most ardent segregationist. But the more time Sarah and Linda spend together, they more they start to feel something they’ve never felt before.
