In 1975, Tempestt Saville and her family are chosen by lottery to "move on up" to Lakeland: one square mile of sparkling apartment towers and emerald lawns where the Black elite live sheltered from the ghetto by a ten-foot-tall, ivy-covered wrought-iron fence. Eleven year old Tammy doesn't enjoy the privilege. Instead, she is drawn to the vivid world outside the fence to 35th Street, where the saved and the sinners are both so "done up" you can't tell one from the other.
