For advanced readers. A girl in high school navigates different challenges such as race, friendship, and school while in a mentoring program for African American girls. She uses her art to communicate truth and ends up showing it to take a stand for a victim of police brutality. This book is very inspiring and a window to look into how it must be to be an African American in our world. I appreciated hearing the thoughts and emotions the main character experienced. ( )

This is an excellent book that digs deep into personal acceptance and identity, especially important to young adolescents. The main character is a very intelligent African American girl named Jade. She has a positive and strong personality throughout. Jade is offered a scholarship which allows her to farther advance her education in a more advanced setting, but it is very different from what she is used to. She is quick to discover that she is a minority there and is expected to act a certain way and join in on certain activities. Jade knows that she must “find herself” and accept that she is special and unique among her many peers that differ from her in many ways. Many young adolescents have similar struggles with identity that can go on for years, thus this book would be an incredible resource for any middle grade classroom to have on shelf. This book could also be an excellent conversation starter or blended in a classroom curriculum regarding the importance of diversity and self-image. ( )

This Newbery and Printz honor book is well worth the accolades. Jaade's mother is poor. She works a job that barely pays the rent and puts food on the table.

Jade is highly intelligent, and she won a scholarship to attend a different highschool -- one where children of rich parents attend.

She learns how to navigate through the rules of the new school and learns how to keep her own identity and self worth while knowing she is different from thee others. She takes a bus across town to her new school.

When she is chosen for a mentorship program titled Woman to Woman, she is paired with a woman who, like her attended the school where she originally didn't belong.

Jade is a strong young lady. The story is told from her perspective. She is very adept at noticing the phrases used by the students who never had to worry about where to eat, and the many things they never have to worry about. Attending the Woman to Woman program meetings serve food. And, Jade learns to slip food in a napkin to take home to her mother and uncle to share

This book shines a light on the haves and the have nots, and while Jade wants to go to college, she does not want to compromise the core of good that makes her the wonderful person she is. ( )

A mentor program opens some doors for a black girl in Portland. Jade finds her voice through her artwork as racism and poverty limit her options in the world.

“I think about this as a ride to school. How I am someone’s answered prayer but also someone’s deferred dream.”

“Traveling changes you. It open to up to in ways you never imagined and makes you appreciate home.”

“I don’t know what’s worse. Being mistreated because of the color of your skin, your size, or having to prove that it really happened.” ( )
