In this new book from author Joan Steinau Lester, Nina never thought much about her biracial heritage until her parents divorced. Now both of Nina's parents are trying to assert their cultural identity upon her, while in her hometown within the San Francisco Bay Area racial tensions flare, and Nina feels caught in the battle. Conflicted and alone, Nina turns to the story of her great-great grandmother who escaped from slavery, hoping to find wisdom and direction in her predecessor's tale.


Identity Crisis.


As a biracial teen, Nina is accustomed to a life of varied hues-mocha-colored skin, ringed brown hair streaked with red, a darker brother, a black father, a white mother. When her parents decide to divorce, the rainbow of Nina's existence is reduced to a much starker reality. Shifting definitions and relationships are playing out all around her, and new boxes and lines seem to be getting drawn every day.


Between the fractures within her family and the racial tensions splintering her hometown, Nina feels caught in perpetual battle. Feeling stranded in the nowhere land between racial boundaries, and struggling for personal independence and identity, Nina turns to the story of her great-great-grandmother's escape from slavery. Is there direction in the tale of her ancestor? Can Nina build her own compass when landmarks from her childhood stop guiding the way?
