This book reflects serious topics like racism, rights and friendship. A lot of adult stuff. This book is written by 2 people with very different perspectives on life. They have reflected on their childhoods and how skin color doesn’t split people into groups. Just because you have a different skin color then someone else, doesn’t mean you can’t be friends. This book is great for middle school students and for anyone really. You don’t have to wear a specific type of shoes to “fit in”. Everyone is a person and should be treated like one no matter how different they look. This is a very deep story and great for middle school teaching.
