Using humor as the common denominator, a multicultural cast
of YA authors steps up to the mic to share stories touching on race.
Listen in as ten YA authors—some familiar, some new —use
their own brand of humor to share their stories about growing up between
cultures. Henry Choi Lee discovers that pretending to be a tai chi master or a
sought-after wiz at math wins him friends for a while—until it comically
backfires. A biracial girl is amused when her dad clears seats for his family
on a crowded subway in under a minute, simply by sitting quietly between two
uptight women. Edited by acclaimed author and speaker Mitali Perkins, this
collection of fiction and nonfiction uses a mix of styles as diverse as their
authors, from laugh-out-loud funny to wry, ironic, or poignant, in prose,
poetry, and comic form.
