The book itself reflects the central idea of what it is like to be young and a person of color in today's world. It is a collection of stories from black and brown young people of all shapes and sizes that speak on the importance and brings awareness to the fact that there are still racial issues in one's friend group and the education system. The diversified book speaks on behalf of all young people. During the first or second chapter, they discussed the comment "you are white". Which is when a fellow black person is called white because how he or she may carry himself or talk, or what music he or she likes. It felt good to know that my issues are other people's issues as well.
