Black White and Jewish
The purpose of this book is to tell readers the struggles she went through when she was younger, how the divorce of her parents affect her and how kids in school bullied her for "pretending" to be someone else. She couldn't decided if she was Black or Jewish. I don't think the purpose of this book was to entertain readers I feel like it was just to explain what people in a different race go through when others see them differently.

"I start to remember in shards, pieces of glass that rip my skin and leave marks. I find tight little cuts all over: one on my left breast, grazing the nipple, and one that starts just below my left eyebrow and runs across my nose to the light brown line of my upper lip."
