Booklist Reviews 2018 November #1

Every week, Isabella has to change gears. She alternates between her white mom and her black dad, who have completely dissimilar lifestyles. Isabella loves both her families, but going back and forth often makes her feel like she has two lives. Her struggle to figure out who she is becomes even harder as the reality of racism hits close to home. An attack on her best friend, who is black, rocks Isabella's school and further confuses her search for identity. Though Isabella's mixed race and struggle to find identity in a world where racism exists are strong components of this book, it is primarily about a child of divorce finding her place in two different families. This is not a criticism; in fact, it makes this an honest and relatable story for a wide range of children. Readers will enjoy the short chapters and Isabella's questioning, conversational tone. Draper (Stella by Starlight, 2015) has written a book in which kids will see themselves, as the experience of being blended touches most lives. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Draper's books are favorites with the masses and the critics. Order extras! Grades 4-7. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Accomplished pianist Isabella loves both of her parents. Unfortunately, they no longer love each other, which means she divides her time between two homes and blended families. Having a black father and a white mother also has Isabella examining her biracial identity. A hate incident at school and an unexpected confrontation threaten to tear apart her already fragile world in Draper's perceptive and engaging story. Copyright 2019 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
