Created by Ali, a teen writer at the Simpson Street Free Press in Madison, WI. 

READ what the author had to say about this book trailer on her website!

Shares stories about growing up in diverse homes or communities, from an Asian youth who gains temporary popularity by making up a false background, to a biracial girl whose father clears subway seats by calmly sitting between two prejudiced women.

Reserve a library copy of the book.

Ali says:

I believe its not just the movie I walk out with that will better me for the future, but the skills I have gained from this program.
