Petra is a 15 year-old girl from the isle of Rügen, in northeast Germany. She goes to California as an exchange student. She lives with a caring American family but encounters prejudice at school, especially from a girl named Debbie. By chance Petra finds Debbie in a dangerous situation. She acts quickly and decisively to rescue her. The two girls become fast friends, and eventually Debbie goes to Rügen to visit Petra and her family.
"A story about a student exchange is a perfect setting for comparing the daily life in two different countries, and for addressing discrimination. This sweet story focuses on overcoming prejudice and enjoying the differences."
