Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  A biracial student questions her identity in this contemporary novel from the author of the Coretta Scott King/John Steptor Award-winning The Rock and the River . Ella and Z have been friends forever, both of them middle-school outsiders in their Las Vegas suburb. Ella is the only black girl in her grade and gets teased for the mottled colors of her face. (Her deceased father was white.) Z is the classic "weird kid" who maintains an elaborate-and public-fantasy life, starring himself as a brave knight. Though Z is content with his imagined world, Ella wishes for a larger group of friends, so she's thrilled when Bailey, another black kid, arrives at their school. He's popular and wants to befriend Ella-but to join the cool crowd, Ella would have to ditch Z. Does she stay loyal to the boy who has been her best and only friend for years, or jump at the chance to realize her dream of popularity? Author Kekla Magoon deftly navigates the muddy waters of racial and cultural identities in this contemporary exploration of one girl's attempt to find herself.
