Call #: J Drape. S

Sharon Draper, the acclaimed author of the beloved, Out of my Mind (2012) returns with an enjoyable book that manages to provide a girls’ eye view of racial issues, from police profiling to skin color dynamics. Isabella’s mom is white and her dad is black and her parents are divorced and she’s traded back and forth once a week at the mall. Isabella (her dad’s name for her) or Izzy (her mom’s name for her) needs to know who she is. Come join Isabella’s life as you oscillate between Mom weeks and Dad weeks and see what you think.

Another terrific and yes, even light-hearted, book that speaks directly to our lives, right now.
