Waiting On Wednesday [@MacKidsBooks @FeiwelFriends]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



INTO WHITE by Randi Pink

LaToya Williams lives in Montgomery, Alabama, and attends a mostly white high school. It seems as if her only friend is her older brother, Alex. Toya doesn’t know where she fits in, but after a run-in with another student, she wonders if life would be different if she were . . . different. And then a higher power answers her prayer: to be “anything but black.”

Toya is suddenly white, blond, and popular. Now what?

Randi Pink’s audacious fiction debut dares to explore a subject that will spark conversations about race, class, and gender

published September 13th by Feiwel & Friends

add to your Goodreads shelf // pre-order from Book Depo // or Amazon


Why?

There are a lot of different directions Toya's story could take, different ways the book could approach a lot of subjects and I, very much, want to see what happens and how.

Into White has a provocative title and description and I am hoping there's an equally well done story and characters, too.

Now what? Exactly.



That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
