Summary, etc.:
In late nineteenth-century California, when Chinese immigrants are being driven out or even killed for fear they will take jobs from whites, fifteen-year-old Eliza Jane McCully defies the townspeople and her lighthouse-keeper father to help a Chinese boy who has been kind to her. Eliza Jane lives in a lighthouse on the northern California coast in 1896. One day a Chinese boy crosses her path, and everything changes. Eliza Jane is forbidden to have anything to do with Wah Chang, but he soon saves her from a dangerous wave. However, tensions in her community explode and the people decide to rid their town of the Chinese. Can Eliza Jane defy the will of her community to do the right thing?
