Summary
In 1975, the Saville family has won the chance to move into Lakeland, a planned community on Chicago's lakefront. Formed as a social experiment, Lakeland is home to many of the city's elite black professionals, but for 11-year-old Tempest, the residents, with their expensive clothes and prissy manners, have "no color" at all. Slipping outside the walled community through a hole in the fence, she is drawn to the raucous environs of Thirty-fifth Street, particularly Miss Jonetta's liquor store. Tempest comes to look upon the store as a refuge from the pressures of her new life. Then a tragic series of events leads the city fathers to start condemnation proceedings on all the illegal storefronts lining Thirty-fifth Street
