Aisha Johnson, a young black girl who epitomizes “black girl magic,” is one of four city-wide finalists for a prestigious college scholarship. In order to win the award, Aisha must outperform the other candidates. Under normal circumstances, these things would prove easy for Aisha, whose academic history has shown nothing but excellence. But these aren’t normal circumstances. Aisha’s world is turned upside down when she reports on the school’s resident “it girls,” for smoking weed in the bathroom at school. Aisha is targeted for being a “snitch.” She must learn not only to navigate the challenging obstacles but to survive while keeping her eyes on the prize.
