Year 4, Book 68

68. The Black Girl Next Door: A Memoir by Jennifer Baszile
Baszile recounts her experiences growing up as a black kid in a well-to-do white neighborhood in California. She shares her feelings about being out of place as the only African-American, but also facing criticism from her parents when they feel she is straying from her roots and not spending enough time with other African-American children. I honestly found a lot of the book boring. I felt like it had the potential to be a lot better than it actually was. I give it 4 out of 10.
