A Librarian Reads…

Blended by Sharon Draper

Izzy spends one week with her white mom, then Isabella spends the next week with her Black dad. She’s gotten used to going back and forth between homes and parents and lives, even names. But that doesn’t mean she likes it. She especially hates how much her parents fight all the time. Now that she’s in sixth grade, though, she’s noticing other ways in which her unique situation causes problems. She isn’t even sure if she’s black or white, both or neither. And does it even matter? As she navigates through some serious incidents, she must figure out not only who she is, but who she wants to be.

Recommended for readers in middle school and up who like realistic stories that deal with families and social injustice.
