When 17-year-old Hazel Newlevant takes a summer job clearing ivy from the forest in her hometown of Portland, Oregon, her only expectation is to earn a little money. Homeschooled, affluent, and sheltered, Hazel soon finds her job working side by side with at-risk teens to be an initiation into a new world that she has no skill in navigating. No Ivy League (Lion Forge) is Newlevant’s uncomfortable and compelling graphic memoir – an important story of a girl's awakening to the racial insularity of her life, the power of white privilege, and the hidden story of segregation in Portland.
