Celebrated editor Mitali Perkins pulls together 10 pieces about race. Usually people put on their serious faces when they talk about race. Here, we do it with a smile. Many of my favorite YA authors have contributed, and the book is diverse in every sense of the word. Some pieces are in prose, others in verse. Mine, the only comic, describes how I got my Avatar: The Last Airbender gig.
