Full Product Description

About the Author: Joan Steinau Lester is a Bellwether Prize finalist and the author of three previous books including 'Fire In My Soul' - a civil rights biography of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. The former Executive Director of the Equity Institute, a national diversity consulting firm, she is a frequent NPR commentator and print columnist. 'Black, White, Other' is her debut novel for young adults.

About the Book: As a biracial teen, Nina is accustomed to a life of varied hues - mocha coloured skin, ringed brown hair streaked with red, a darker brother, a black father, a white mother.

When her parents decide to divorce, the rainbow of Nina's existence is reduced to a much starker reality. Shifting definitions and relationships are playing out all around her, and new boxes and lines seem to be getting drawn every day. Between the fractures within her family and the racial tensions splintering her hometown, Nina feels caught in perpetual battle.

Feeling stranded in the nowhere land between racial boundaries, and struggling for personal independence and identity, Nina turns to the story of her great-great-grandmother's escape from slavery. Is there direction in the tale of her ancestor? Can Nina build her own compass when landmarks from her childhood stop guiding the way?
