Black, White, Other: In Search of Nina Armstrong by Joan Steinau Lester - All her life, Nina has been told that race doesn't matter, that her Black and White heritages have come together to make her perfect just the way she is. But when her parents' divorce and her friends sart acting strange, she feels like she is being forced to choose sides. Excellent novel, could lead to fantastic discussions about cliques, race and defining who you are.
Julia's Child by Sarah Pinneo - story of a mom who tries to juggle family life with her business creating organic foods for toddlers. Mostly enjoyed by hate how the author barely changes some real life things (i.e., tv show "The Scene" is obviously "The View," etc.) That just feels lazy to me.
