Summary:
Forced tomove to a new and strange city, with her strict African American grandmother as her new guardian, Rachel is thrust for the first time into a mostly black community, where her light brown skin, startling blue eyes, and beauty bring a stream of constant attention her way. Raised by her mother to think of herself as white, Rachel is now expected to "act black." And all the while she keeps asking herself why she has to be defined by her skin and whether labels say more about who she is or more about a world that attempts to brand her as black or white.
