Into White

LaToya goes to a mostly white school. She has no friends and even the other black kids make fun of her. One night she prays to be anything but black, and she wakes up with white skin, blond hair, and blue eyes. Then the real fun begins in this journey of self-discovery that takes shocking and hilarious twists and turns.

This was an interesting book about putting oneself in someone else's shoes. It was not as hard hitting as I might have liked. There were some good moments that got you thinking, but overall, things turned out as expected. I'm not sure what this book was trying to accomplish.

It is one to consider for high school readers, but not middle school ones.
