THE UNGRATEFUL ONES
Things are finally looking up for troubled Iris, a fourteen-year-old mixed-race African-American girl, after she receives a full scholarship to an elite academy for young women, led by the enigmatic headmistress, Carm. Iris finds camaraderie and empathy in her fellow scholarship students, Beatriz and Ha-yoon, and is enthralled by Carm’s zealous mentorship. But as time goes on, the girls begin to realize that not everything is black and white—not Carm’s seemingly altruistic motives, nor her otherworldly charm... After all, there’s no such thing as a free education.
