Summary

More
It's almost Christmas and school is going great for EllRay. He's "blending in" just the way he likes. So when his father tells him he should be proud to be part of the African American "community," EllRay isn't so sure he wants to call attention to his differences. After all, he's only one of two boys in his class with brown skin. Then, totally by accident, he insults the other boy—one of his best friends—and all at once EllRay is back to being the center of attention. And not exactly for good reasons.

With Sally Warner's trademark sense of humor and spot-on dialogue, EllRay confronts questions about race and how it impacts both himself and everyone around him.
