Oak Knoll is an established, close-knit community in North Carolina that is home to scholars, business owners, and other upper class members. It's also the home of widow Valerie Alston-Holt, a professor of forestry and ecology, who is a single mom raising her talented biracial son, Xavier.

Xavier has his entire life ahead of him, with a clear path and a bright future. Until Brad Whitman and his family move into the neighborhood, including their troubled teenage daughter, who quickly sparks a romantic relationship with Xavier.

These two families have nothing in common, and quickly find themselves at odds. A Good Neighborhood asks the tough questions about life in America and what it's like to grow up looking different than the person next door. As it explores difficult conversations about class, race, and love - it proves to be as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. 

Pricing is dependent upon a couple things:

1. At the discretion of the publisher and/or author for new copies. If there is a set retail price required, A Book Well Loved will meet those requirements when listing in the shop.

2. At the discretion of our ownership: For used books, we will follow a typical "grading" structure for pricing used books. We take into consideration the age of the book, the overall quality of the book, and how popular a certain title might be. In general, we try to stick to the following outline (but keep in mind, there may be some exceptions):

For Like New Books: 40% off retail jacket cover price

For Good Condition Books: 50% off retail jacket cover price

For Fair Books, Older Books: 60% off retail jacket cover price
