Allmänna fakta



Representation: Biracial main character
Trigger warnings: Racism, divorce, gun violence

7/10, this was a novel that touched on many quite serious topics such as racism and divorce and I'm surprised that this is only a middle grade novel but this was still a good book most of the time. The main character Isabella was fine and she was neither likable or dislikable rather she was just neutral but she went through a lot of things in her life but at the very least she got through all of them. She had some interesting characteristics such as being a pianist and having to switch between two houses every single week, she didn't like that at first however she eventually got used to her new life and towards the end of the book both her mother and father married two new people so they became her stepmother and stepfather and now technically she has four parents? Some parts of this novel were quite heavy such as the noose incident at her school and the police shooting, the first one was probably racially motivated and the second one must've been a misunderstanding and they were quite distressing to read. By the way the cultural references within the novel were quite dated such as the dab, fidget spinners and making slime, what year was this book set in, maybe 2017, since those things were very popular in that year. If you like a book about social issues this is the book for you.… (mer)

Draper expertly captures what it is like to be unable to communicate in a tale that is relatable to all middle-graders.
