The first chapter book I read in 2019 was Blended written by one my favs, Sharon Draper. She also wrote Out of my Mind. This middle grade book follows a biracial girl as she comes to understand who she is; blended. The story focuses primarily on how she adjust to her newly divorced parents and their new relationships and being flip flopped between her dad (black and financially well) and her mom (white and financially okay). The shocker are the other stories that arise like what is discovered in one students locker and the small action that occurs on the way to her piano recital.

My feelings about this book are blended! There was a love and dislike with the plot.
