Love is blind, but only to those who are in love. A bump in the high school hallway connects Jeremiah, an African-American, and Ellie, a Jewish girl who is white. First love can be tough enough without the added pressures created by an inter-racial relationship. Together, Jeremiah and Ellie see only each other, but unfortunately they can not avoid the tragedy brought about by stereotypes and racism.
