I am looking for this book I read 6 years ago. The stuff I remember:
There are two main charcters an African American girl,
and a white boy
the girl's mother never lets the girl shave her legs/remove the hair from her legs. The girl does eventually shave her legs going against her mother's wishes. Turns out the reason is because the girl has grown into a power/gift in which she can become a spider when she wishes. Her father also posesses this trait, though the girl is unaware of this until later.
The boy is having some sort of famiy issues, and decides that he will keep shaving his eyebrows until those issues are solved.
The boy and the girl do meet by chance on the roof of a building. I believe they do some roof jumping and that is how they keep meeting.
I really want to reread this book to see it though different eyes !! Please, any ideas would be a great help.
