What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Lulu loves her family, but people are always asking What are you? Lulu hates that question. Her brother inspires her to come up with a power phrase so she can easily express who she is, not what she is. Includes a note from the author, sharing her experience as the only biracial person in her family and advice for navigating the complexity of when both parents do not share the same racial identity as their children.
